Editors Best of 2009: The coolest books, music, and DVDs for kids
If there's one thing our kids' rooms have in common, it's very packed bookshelves. Here are some of our favorite books, music and DVDs to help educate, inspire, and just keep kids cool.
Kristen: Thanks to the The Double Daring Book for Girls, I know how to build a raft And so does my 5-year-old. An absolute must-have addition to any kid's library.
Kristen: My kids listened to Recess Monkey's Field Trip CD
so much that we had to go buy another one. Even though we've been
jamming to it since its release earlier this year, it still hasn't
Liz: When we're in the car, I kind of hope my kids ask for the Lunch Money CD, Dizzy
. The music is lovely and mellow, and the lyrics to It Only Takes One Night to Make a Balloon Your Friend
are as close to perfection as it gets.
Liz: This year, Sesame Street turned 40
and released Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days
While a full-on feature is on the docket for the new year, we'd be
remiss if we didn't include it here. It's just a fabulous compilation,
one that will bring back memories for parents and create new ones for
kids, all in the very same episodes. (Available from our affiliate Amazon
