Has anyone used any music CDs or other learning audio material to teach their preschoolers?
When I was a kid, my sister and I had these tapes and they had really great american folks songs on them--which were not done in those annoying kids voices but were an adult singing to/for children.
I have some ABC cd's which my son seems to like but I would like to find more. I also play music from different countries for him, especially Irish music and we have many of the Singing Nuns CDs, which he likes too.
So if anyone has any favorites or ideas, I would love to hear them.

Our children love these tapes. Very amateur, but enjoyable and informative. Children who have been weaned on Disney and other high budget media may not appreciate them. I don't recommend the For Better or For Worse tapes though; they are a bit strange.
These educational CDs are dramatized stories set to music. Very young children will enjoy them, but they are more for elementary kids. Catholic parents may want to steer clear of Mozart's Magic Fantasy if you don't approve of nice dragons or the Magic Flute. The Song of the Unicorn, likewise may be something some parents may not want as it is about magic. We listen to both though. Try Beethoven Lives Upstairs if you can't decide. Daydreams and Lullabies is a good start for small children.
I am so excited!
I just got an e-mail from Angelus Press, and they are now offering several Regina Martyrum titles on CD- one has been redone, and there are two new ones!! My kids are so excited- they were whipping out their wallets to help pay for them. (Crazy homeschooled kids!)
