The Donahue family is bonkers for family music. We try to share that with other families on www.kidsadventuring.org. Just about every Tuesday, we run a music review for upcoming music or old favorites. I'd love to see if we can get a conversation started here about favorite children's/family music for those car rides.
It seems that there are more and more artists who are including a green theme or an outdoor play theme to their songs. (Roger Day, Justin Roberts, Ralph's World, Frances England: just to name a few) Let's see if we can get some music listed here for families. Better yet, let's see if we can get those artists coonected through the Children and Nature Network and the Ning site!
If you know of a family musician, invite them to the Ning site and get them involved. I think this sounds like a great way to get families connected. Imagine a family, heading to a family hike, singing about the LNT principles on the way to the hike. Might help make the difference!
