I love Christmas music. I always have. When I was a kid we'd put on a favorite Christmas cd and listen as we decorated the tree. It's one of my fondest memories. Even when I'm in a Scrooge type funk I can get into the Christmas spirit if I listen to some amazing holiday music. My kids like any kind of music and enjoy when we listen to something kid friendly while playing in their room.

This year we have a new disc to listen to from one of my favorite places for kids' music. Putumayo Kids has a holiday album called A Family Christmas. The album is full of classic Christmas songs sung by amazing artists. There are so many wonderful songs and artists on this album. I will say that my favorite track is number 3 and it's sung by one of my fave bands, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. The music is fun and upbeat. My kids love it and it definitely got us all a little more into the spirit of the season. I foresee many great evenings this winter with Putumayo Kids playing in the background. It will also make a lovely car ride companion when we're traveling to see family at Christmas. Putumayo Kids also has three other Christmas albums that I'd love to have. A Jazz and Blues Christmas, New Orleans Christmas and Christmas Around the World all look wonderful and I'm sure the music is just as amazing as on all the other Putumayo albums.

Putumayo Kids is the children’s and educational division of Putumayo World Music. As one of the leading children’s record labels, Putumayo Kids is committed to introducing children to other cultures through music from around the world. Putumayo Kids' music is entertaining while exposing children to an array of different cultures and sparking their curiosity. Their albums have won multiple awards from esteemed places like the American Library Association, Scholastic Magazine and the National Parenting Publications Association. Their website is colorful and full of wonderful resources for parents and teachers. I love the free downloadable teaching guides that go along with their albums.

The Putumayo Kids Picnic Playground is one of my kids' favorite albums to listen to. Now, with the addition of A Family Christmas, we can have holiday Putumayo fun any time we want. I highly recommend any of the Putumayo Kids albums to anyone with children. These would be wonderful for background music in a classroom, playroom, bedroom or the car and I think they'd be perfect gifts for any child or teacher. The Putumayo Kids Christmas albums are definitely a Lolidots Ultimate Gift Guide pick and I definitely recommend picking one up for your family.
