Putumayo Kids - Animal PlaygroundPutumayo World Music
Subtitled 'Playful tracks from around the world' we start with 'Animal Crackers' from the aptly named Wee Hairy Beasties (featuring the Mekon's Jon Langford). Some tracks like The Be Good Tanya's 'The Littlest Birds' are more familiar than others while Quartetto Cetra deliver an Italian version of 'Old Macdonald' and kids themselves join in on Les P'tits Loups du Jazz and 'L'Otorhinoceros'. Be warned if you listen to this with your kids you might find you keep singing 'no more monkeys jumping on the bed' for the rest of the day! Good fun.
