Kid's Music Series: Acoustic Dreamland by Putumayo and GIVEAWAY

 Putumayo's newest release Acoustic Dreamland is the perfect soundtrack to help you and your little ones relax.  The voices in each song are all so different, yet tie together in an acoustic soundtrack that will bring you and your kids together to snuggle up on a cold winter day.

 Acoustic Dreamland offers songs that were originally from the Allman Brothers, James Taylor, Wilco and Mary Chapin Carpenter, to name a few.

Here is what you get on the album:
Dreamland:  This song create imagines for me of flying fairies and candy fields.  Honestly, I have no idea why my dreams consist of such things, but it is a peaceful song and makes me smile!
Everything is Going to Be Alright:  This simple song with guitar and a country-rustic vibe really make me think of rolling in the grass with my kids. 
Blue Sky:  I love the woman's voice in this one and harmonies of the man's voice in the chorus.  The sound is so pure, and peaceful.
You Can Close Your Eyes:  Time to put your little ones to sleep with this one.  Great vocals, and wonderful lyrics about the love a parent has for child.
In the Land of Dreams:  This song is more folksy than the others and adds a fun fantasy vibe to the soundtrack.
Here with Me:  Taylor Swift watch out...you have some competition!  Seriously, Frances England was definetly channeling Swift in this adorable song.
My Darling:  "Go back to sleep my darling, and I will keep all the bad dreams away."  The lyrics tell the story of a father's comforting words he offers his child.
Tomorrow:  A peaceful song that reminds me of a mother's promise that wherever her child goes, she will be there (whether in spirit, or in real life). 
The Hour of Sleep:  This one if for me.  I needed the lyrics in this one to remind me that the day is done, and my work is done...hint, I just need to let it all go and relax!
My Father's Waltz:  The piano adds just the right amount of melody to the unique voice of the singer.  I liked the lyrics and the overall "feel" of this one.
Next Time:  Follow the words and lay down...until next time.

I give Putumayo's Acoustic Dreamland a 5 out of 5 because it was just what my kids (and more so myself) needed to help us relax during the hectic holiday season.  Check it out for yourself...and stay tuned for a giveaway of this album coming soon to MLME!
