I have been a fan of Putumayo CDs for as long as I can remember -- and I especially love the Putumayo Kids compilations. I know that I've shared our love for them before, (here and here), and they are often heard playing in our house.
I was excited to open an envelope last week and find an advance copy of Putumayo Kids Acoustic Dreamland. All of my kids fall asleep to music, and while we definitely have some favorites in our house, we also like to find new music to add to the rotation. Nate especially likes to fall asleep to music, so I gave him the CD the night it arrived so that he could test it out.
The next morning, he informed me that I should put it on his iPod and that it only took 3 songs before he was "out cold!"
I listened to the CD and agreed that it was a wonderfully relaxing CD. It starts with a cover of Mary Chapin Carpenter's "Dreamland" and continues from there with sweet music. I'm hard-pressed to choose a favorite, but I really liked "You Can Close Your Eyes."
I've yet to be disappointed by a Putumayo compilation, and this one didn't disappoint either. I'm happy to add it to our collection, and expect to listen to it for years to come!
The CD releases on February 22, 2011, but is available for pre-order on Amazon.
