Classic Folk Songs for Kids
Smithonian Folkways
CD and 40-page booklet
56 minutes

26 classic tracks from the Smithsonian Folkways collections tell an intriguing story of American signature sing-alongs. The songs' origins are as fascinating as they are fun: old European ballads, American Revolutionary tune, 19th-century American folksongs, African-derived game songs, a sea chantey, a railroad jingle, camp songs, and even an opera song! The singers are a who's who of American folk music.

The 40-page booklet includes lyrics.
