A Children's Playlist

It's been coming up a lot lately in various conversations, so I decided to tell you all about our Children's Playlist, the only thing our kids listen to in the car (and most everywhere else). They are grouped by type, and listed by artist then album. No, I do not get bored listening to this playlist nearly every where I go. First, because it is a full two days of listening. And second, because there is plenty of variety to keep me interested. And third, because when I'm by myself, I listen to my own custom playlist; like that ever happens.

Children's Radio Shows, via podcasts, these rotate regularly:
CBH Ministries: Keys for Kids
Focus on the Family: Adventures in Odyssey

Chula Rogers: Memory Verse Songs
Eric Martin's reading of the KJV: all Psalms and Proverbs

Audio books/kid's stories:
The Brother's Grimm: Mother Goose Stories, One of my favorite productions of all time. Hear the stories behind the mother goose poems.
Fischer Price: Story Time Favorites, Came with a board book: The Three Little Pigs. I don't love the voice actors, but they don't completely irritate me.
Soundscape Productions: Curious George Came in a Curious George travel pack with books, games, etc.
*I am always looking for more kids audiobooks. Let me know if you see any.

4 Him: Hymns (a Place of Worship)
Family Life Today: Thanksgiving
Jonathan Story: Inspirational Music for Piano and Organ
Joni Tada: Hymns for a Kid's Heart
Keith Wiggins: Guitar Hymns
Porter: Music Box Hymns
Singing Men of Arkansas: Celebrate Musical America, Select tracks.

Disney/Mickey & Friends: Sing-a-long Fun (Classic Children's Music)
