Putumayo Kids Presents: Picnic Playground is a smorgasbord of delicious music from all over the world.
Putumayo Kids Presents: Picnic Playground kicks off with a laid-back ditty, “I Like To Eat Like a Rainbow.” This song has stayed stuck in my head for days on end without driving me insane. I’d say that is the mark of a great children’s song.
Other songs on the album come to us from around the world; places like Australia, Cuba, Denmark, France, Germany, Canada and Trinidad.
This music is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing and nourishing meal, whether your dining on Bolitas de Arroz con Pollo, or just Bowl of Cherries .
The liner notes are printed in English, French, and Spanish.
It is hard for me to pick a favorite song on this one: I definitely love the Caribbean flair of Ice Cream, but then there is the toe-tapping goodness of Shoo Fly Pie. And I just can’t quit “I Like To Eat Like A Rainbow”.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of Putumayo Kids Presents: Picnic Playground will be donated to Vitamin Angels, an organization that reduces child mortality worldwide by connecting essential vitamins with infants and children under five.
When you listen to these lovely tunes, which range in style from Merengue to Puerto Rican Bomba, you just gotta move!
And you can boogie to a mix of Spanish and English vocals. Internationally groovin’!
My Trampoline has something for parents and kids alike. My personal favorite is the song, “Are There Any Kids Named Steve Anymore?”, but there are also tunes about an African leopard tortoise named King Ferdinand, trees, flowers, and a picky eater named Peter (I wonder if this one is autobiographical?).
