Thread Name: I'm looking for CHILDREN'S MUSIC
Subject: RE: I'm looking for CHILDREN'S MUSIC
For new, fun songs, it's worth looking for tapes by Tom Pease (your library might have some). We have been particularly fond of "I'm gonna reach" and "Boogie! Boogie! Boogie!". I've ordered from Tomorrow River Music in Madison, Wisconsin (Box 165, 53701; phone: 608 423-3095).

There are also lots of good books of kids songs (and even more mediocre books, but that goes with the territory). Again, a library is likely to have a few. I've used Milton Okun's "Giant book of children's songs" as a decent compendium of middle of the road american stuff (five, count them, five, versions of "Puff"), which I got from Elderly Instruments, in Lansing, Michigan.

I would be interested in any suggestions that people have about books of kids songs from countries other than the U.S.
