A playlist of cool things for cool kids!

Kids rock! There's no question about it. They are simply much cooler than you and me. This playlist is for those of us just trying to keep up with these mod toddlers and hip preschoolers. It's about promoting children's books, music, and other media that rock just as much as our kids do. Check out something cool for your cool kid.

Too Many Toys

Just in time for that post-holiday toy hangover, David Shannon returns with a fantastic new book.   Perhaps only an artist of David Shannon's freakish talent is up to the challenge of cataloguing the dizzying abundance of a modern kid's toy box.  To look into that roiling cauldron of consumerism and not despair utterly, takes a brave, brave heart and a sense of humor born of peerless compassion.  Which is to say, I'm feeling a little guilty about all the toys under the tree this year.  But this book was one of best gifts.  And Mr. Shannon deserves a special thank you note.  

Maybe you have some toys to donate to a good cause?
