Artist: The Pop Ups
Album: Appetite for Construction
Age Range: 3 through 6
Description: Again, I'll let my NPR review of the album do most of the talking: "Brooklyn duo The Pop-Ups take the listeners back to 1985 on their album... If MTV had a kids music channel in their video heyday, "All These Shapes" would have been in constant rotation... They sing about making puppets, creating photo collages and trying on all sorts of clothes at a costume party." This is definitely geared at your preschooler or kindergartner, though the sounds and hooks may keep it fresh even for a first or second grader. Not to mention, well, you. Highly recommended.
