This collection of songs and rhymes features 35 familiar nursery rhymes and songs, collected from hundreds of possibilities in the children’s canon. As Loeb notes, These are the songs I sing to my young children when we’re getting out of bed, when we get dressed in the morning, when we drive in the car, take a bath, or get ready for bed. The production and singing are gentle and simple.”
Why we like it: The title gives you a good idea of what you’ll hear on this CD – a parade of nursery rhymes. Over 35 of them! This is a family music version of a standards album. While Loeb keeps her renditions pretty traditional, there’s a charming quality to her performances that makes these old tunes sounding fresh. Parents might miss having a new batch of Loeb’s clever original songs but this album provides little ones with a lovely treasury of timeless tunes.
