Great Children’s Music Appeals to Adults as Well as Kids


family-joy-resized-image-760x429There are many children’s songs that  parents enjoy almost as much as their kids because they  are performed by talented artists who simply love children. This type of music is a joy to listen to . It touches something deep inside us, resurrecting our inner child perhaps. I  love Skinnamarinky dinky dink; it really did make me as happy as my kids. What a contrast to poorly done children’s shows and videos that are irritating and inane. Honestly, people must think kids are idiots.

When I Googled this song, I discovered that  it’s a traditional folk song, though I always associate it with Sharon Lois & Bram’s Elephant Show. Did you watch this show as a kid? This version is from 1986, so even my eldest kids grew up listening to it. I love how it has little movements to accompany the lyrics. Great for making babies smile and getting toddlers to practice movement and rhythm.

Skinnamarinky dinky dink

Skinnamarinky do,

I love you!

Skinnamarinky dinky dink

Skinnamarinky do,

I love you!

I love you in the morning,

And in the afternoon

I love you in the evening,

Underneath the moon…

Skinnamarinky dinky dink

Skinnamarinky do,

I love you!

  1. Our family song is “A Bushel and a Peck”

    “Oh, I love you, a bushel and a peck,
    A bushel and a peck,
    And a hug around your neck.
    Hug around your neck
    And a barrel and a heap,
    I’m talking in my sleep about you,
    About you.
    Oh, I love you, a bushel and a peck,
    You bet you’re pretty neck I do.
    Do-do-de-loo-do, Do-do-de-loo-do, Do-do-de-loo-do,
    DO!”
