Music for Preschoolers
Jewish music your kids will love--that isn't mind-numbing for you
By Matthue Roth
This punk-tinged album might give some parents headaches, but that's exactly what will sell it to the kids. Distorted guitars go up against Shippel's pretty, melodic voice, and the album's 10 tracks (plus the bonus secret song "Five Challahs") are an instructional guide to Friday night Shabbat songs, including blessings and classics like "Bim Bam" and "Zum Gali Gali." If you have a kid who turns the volume on her "Hiney Mah Tov" up to 11, this is the Shabbat music for you.
