Strawberry Jam

So far I’ve made 7 music compilations for my kids. I find that most music targeted at kids is pretty intolerable, so it’s usually a bit of a challenge to put these compilations together. The comps are generally a mix of actual kids music and music not made for kids that seems kid-friendly. Part of the goal is to make something that kids will enjoy and that their parents will find interesting and tolerable for repeat listens. I made this one in July 2011 for my son’s birthday.
