Kid-Friendly Music Mixes For Parents And Kids Growing Together
“Mountain Folks” is a lighthearted acoustic music playlist, with songs in the bluegrass and folk singer-songwriter genres. This music brings to mind the mountains, where wild animals roam through pine forests, sunny rain, and stony rivers.

“Wonder Working” is a playlist with music by Ben Harper, Willie Nelson, Xavier Rudd, Laura Mvula, and other artists whose songs invite the creative juices to flow, with the help of some spiritual stimulation.
