I have always loved children's folk songs.  I hope you do, too.

Ella Jenkins is "The First Lady of Children's Folk Songs."  Here's her 1955 album "Multicultural Children's Songs."

Pete Seeger loved to perform for children.  Here's one of his albums of animal songs for children, ""Birds, Beasts, Bugs & Fishes:  Little & Big Animal Folk Songs."

The popular folk group The Limeliters recorded one of their children's concerts, "Through Children's Eyes."

We used sing a number of Rosenshontz songs to our children (still do, even though they are in their forties).  Here's their "Greatest Hits" album.

Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer entertain first graders from Leckie Elementary School and show them how music is made in this Library of Congress Video.

Here's Tom Glazer with a few entertaining songs in these old 78s.  Then we have his album "On Top of Spaghetti," a classic, for sure.

Peter, Paul & Mary Mommy had a special link to the magic of childhood.

There are many more artist who could be spotlighted here, but let me just leave you with a Bob Dylan song recorded by Pete Seeger.
