Little Ones:
Here Comes Christmas by Caroline Jayne Church.  A little boy imagines what he’ll receive for Christmas: a dragon to ride, a lollipop tree–but can these things be?

Little Scholastic: Stacking Shapes by Salina Yoon.  A literary spin on a classic toy, Little Scholastic: Stacking Shapes is an active read for any young child. Children can sort and stack the four primary-colored die-cut board books on a solid post, and read each one to learn about shapes and colors! $12.99.

It’s Christmas David! by David Shannon.  Readers of all ages will vividly remember trying to peek at hidden gift packages; writing scrolls of wish lists to Santa; and struggling to behave at formal Christmas dinner parties. Always in the background, we know Santa Claus is watching, soon to decide if David deserves a shiny new fire truck or a lump of coal under the tree. From playing with delicate ornaments to standing in an endlessly long line for Santa, here are common Christmas activities–but with David’s naughty trimmings. $16.99.

Rock & Roll Playground CD Due Out June 29th [Amazon]

Award-winning children’s music label Putumayo Kids will celebrate the June 29th release of its newest CD, Rock & Roll Playground [More Information], with a concert by featured artist StarFish June 19 at the Scholastic Auditorium.

According to Cookie Magazine, they “continue Jersey’s tradition of“totally boss rock acts. Nothing about any of it screams ‘kids’ music.’ Yet the same fans who dance to Dora the Explorer somehow rock out to StarFish too.”

Putumayo Kids will also host an online “Air Guitar Video Contest,” beginning June 15th and running through August 1st. Parents can visit www.putumayokids.com to submit videos of their children playing air guitar to “The Starfish Stomp” for the chance to win an in-home concert with Ray Leone, the founder and lead guitarist of StarFish. A free mp3 download of the song will be available on the website. Second and third place winners will receive a prize package of five Putumayo Kids CDs.

Rock & Roll Playground is a tribute to the early history of rock ‘n’ roll and features music by a stellar group of established and up-and-coming artists, from Grammyâ Award winners Dan Zanes and Friends to rockabilly royalty Rosie Flores. Widely recognized as one of the most innovative children’s music labels in the United States, the award-winning Putumayo Kids is committed to introducing children to different cultures through fun, upbeat collections of music from around the world.
