Ziggy Marley is bringing music to the LITTLE people! He is releasing his first children’s album and has invited some family and pretty cool friends to join him on it. Jack Johnson, Laurie Berkner, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Jamie Lee Curtis are only a few of the artists featured on the CD Family Time, in stores May 5th. In addition to some well known classics like “This Train” and “Hold Him Joe” Ziggy has written many original songs on this release which are endearing tributes to his family with many sage words of wisdom for kids.
“Growing up, music was an important part of my childhood. I see it being just as important in my children and all children’s growth and development, to help them grow with open minds and open hearts… This record represents my daily family life and is inspired by my three-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon. It was a joy to make and opened up new avenues in my creativity.”

My favorite (by coincidence) is Row Row Row Your Boat because for the past 3 days I've been visiting my granddaughters for a Mother's Day weekend out of state, and this morning my little 2 year old granddaughter sat with me and over and over we sang the song together. What a thrill that was!
Day is done, little one. After It's Hippity Hop To Bed it is the first song I sang to the kids to get them wound down from story time and we sort of make a little game when we do the close your eyes now sweet dreamer part and it's just a fun,silly thing we do.
My daughter loves Old McDonald had a farm. I think it's super cute to hear a toddler try and sing this along with all of the animal sounds. Thank you!
My kids and especially my son love Take Me to Jamaica!! They dance and squirm and wiggle to it, it' so darn cute to watch them in seventh heaven with this wonderful song!
My daughter loves "rubber duckie" and my son loves the sesame street song...Thanks for the chance at winning
I ALWAYS LOVED THE ITSY BITSY SPIDER..my mom used to sing that to me all the time when i was little and it brings back so much comfort and good feeling whenever i hear it :)
You are my Sunshine.. I still remember my husband singing it to our first daughter when she was coming out of her anesthesia after her heart surgery.
It's the theme song from "Barney." My boys and I used to sing it all the time together, it brings back memories from when they were small. Now they are grown up and away from the house and I can still remember when they were little and cuddly in my arms and it brings a smile to my face.
You are my sunshine is my favorite, but I use to sing rock-a-bye baby, to my children when they were little, too. Thanks for having the contest!
I'd have to go with "You Are My Sunshine". Though it's not really a kid's song, my parents always sang it to me and I now sing it to my kids! I love it!
My son loves Zeko and potocic (a Croatian song about a rabbit and a lake). My wife is from there and she tought him. He said it's his favorite because he feels sad for the rabbit and wishes that he would help him. In the song, the rabbit couldn't find his favorite lake, since it all froze in the winter.
I always liked Old MacDonald because you can keep singing it as long as you can think of animals and it also works great to get my nephew to stop crying!
Ba-lump Went The Little Green Frog is the best song ever! Made my little one laugh soooo hard! Love that sound!
"You Are My Sunshine" was my favorite song as a child and I passed it on to my daughter, who also loves it! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!
The song I have always sang to my son was Puff the Majic Dragon. Others are I love you a bushel and a peck and you are my sunshine.
Our all-time favorite kids song is B-I-N-G-O and Bingo was his name-o. Please accept my entry. Thank you.
My favorite kids song is "This Old Man". My dad used to sing it to me as a kid. He also told me this funny joke that plays on the song. Something about a frog, a loan, Mrs. Pattywack and The Rolling Stones.
A fan of Raggae and Marley. I think it is beautiful that Ziggy put out a children album although all of the Marley music is all family friendly:)
