Songs for Two-Year-Olds and Up!

My niece Sophia has been getting really into music lately. Yes, she worships the Wiggles, but she's also into Baa Baa Black Sheep, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Old McDonald Had a Farm, and Humpty Dumpty. I thought it was time to start introducing her to some new tunes, so I made her a mix. She's really into spiders, bugs and animals of all kinds, so I loaded it up with songs of that nature, tucking in little surprises here and there. We played this in the car the other day, and we were all singing along to it in traffic, having a grand old time. This mix will probably appeal to kids of various ages, and some adults too (if you're like me!).
