Tasty Tunes for Tots

I don’t know about you, but nothing drives me crazier faster than kids music. But Tiny G, like most babies, can’t get enough of it. The other night my friend Andrea, whose little guy is a few days older than Tiny G, asked if he had the Putumayo Kids Picnic Playground album. It’s an album of upbeat international songs about food, with titles like “Bowl of Cherries,” “Goutez-les,” and “Pomodoro.”  She added that her 15-month-old “lights up every time we play bolitas de arroz con pollo, which I am hoping is thanks to his Latino blood.” Curious to see if I could stomach it, I sampled a bunch of tracks online for Tiny G before purchasing and it was crazy—he started bouncing to the Cuban beat of “Bolitas de Arroz con Pollo,” and even tried “singing” along with “Milch” from Germany. It’s a really sweet little album that kids and parents will both enjoy, and bonus—it’s about food!
