Best for Driving the Kids to Soccer Practice or Going on a Road Trip
Tabby Road, by Recess Monkey
This Seattle band is composed of three elementary-school teachers who, as you might expect from the album title, have a bit of a Beatles fixation. And the CD sounds as if the Fab Four or the Kinks had recorded tracks about birthday parties, pets, and monsters under the bed. The topics on this disc are child-focused, but the music will definitely hook parents, too ($15, amazon.com).
