Just when you thought it was safe to limit your kids' record collection to the complete discographies of Dan Zanes and Ralph's World, the smart and instantly diggable Terrible Twos come along with a batch of tunes as irrepressible and insistent as a toddler at Toys 'R' Us. If You Ever See an Owl, the Kansas act's debut, is all it's been cracked up to be, which is this year's preschool indie smash: Opener "Ladybug" gets liftoff from bright guitars and a vocal by frontman Michael Pryor, formerly of the Get Up Kids, that doesn't land hard but avoids over-softness, too; "A Rake. A Broom. A Mop. A Shovel." benefits from They Might Be Giants-style brilliance in the songwriting department; and more heartfelt songs like "The Littlest Houdini," about Pryor's son, head in a likable emo direction that heretofore hasn't been explored in original kids' music. Rockin' households in which the real-life terrible twos are wreaking havoc, here's your reward. --Tammy La Gorce

For anyone who listens to the get up kids (r.i.p.) and the new amsterdams knows matt pryor is nothing short of remarkable with his vocals and his musical arrangements, now on to a new project where he mixes some new amsterdams with some robert munsch, its a childrens album for the ages.

We bought this album for our baby after hearing about it on NPR. We enjoy listening to the songs, and singing along with them. I am going to buy a copy for my son's daycare as well.

If you like the New Amsterdams, and you have young kids, this cd is perfect for them. It is silly and playful and very imaginative. I have a one year old nephew that I bought this for, but listen to it myself.

We own at least 25 "kid" CDs between my two kids with everything from Laurie Berkner to They Might Be Giants to Disney CDs and lesser known artists. This one is my 2 year old's favorite right now though. She calls it "Ladybug music" because the first song is Ladybug and she asks for it every day. Thankfully it's not at all annoying like a lot of kid CDs so I don't mind listening to it with her. I LOVE the song "Grumpy Bug." I learned all the words to it and added it into our mix of songs I sing to the kids as lullabies at bedtime. My 5 year old requests I sing that one to him almost every night.

A lot of parents want to find music for their kids that is more progressive than nursery rhymes and itsy bitsy spider. Well, I have found out that kids actually really like nursery rhymes and itsy bitsy spider. But I try anyway. I bought this because I like the Get Up Kids, and am happy to report that my 2 year old loves the first song "Ladybug", so much that we never get to hear the rest of the CD. I have listened to it all the way through without her though, and I quite like it.

This is one of my (2-year-old) daughter and my favorite CDs. It's just the right mix of sweetness and coolness at the same time. Totally appropriate for kids, yet fun for adults, too. The lyrics are entertaining and not repetitive or "dumbed down," and they're easy to sing along with. My daughter gets such a kick out of "Smickey."

This frequently makes it to our breakfast playlist. It's a great way to start the day!
