What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this collection of kids' songs is sweet without being sappy and serene but not sleepy. Suzuki-oriented families may be impressed by the fact that the CD provides a foundation for further musical explorations involving the standard Suzuki repertoire used by piano, guitar, flute, and strings; the rest of us can just relax and enjoy the lovely harmonies and melodies.

What's the story?

TWO FLOWERS is a collection of 14 lullabies and love songs that are vivid enough not to put parents to sleep and never condescend. With an all-star team that includes Danielle Sansone's brother, Wilco's Patrick Sansone, the songs capture moments of wonder and delight in a child's world. They're also an authentic tribute to American roots music, with arrangements that include violin, slide guitar, banjo, pedal steel, and gorgeous harmonies.

Is it any good?

Sansone's sweet, folksy voice and tasteful musicianship set the stage for a lovely album. The lyrics are gentle but playful, with the theme of dreams -- as well as flowers, trees, and blue sky -- playing a big role. The songs are little celebrations of hugs and kisses, laughter, and peaceful sleep (though "too much coffee for mama" also plays a part).

Very young children can enjoy the sweet, soothing sounds while being exposed to truly excellent musicianship, while older siblings -- especially music students -- will enjoy picking out parts played by the various instruments.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the song "Bed of Roses" ("dream, dream a bed of roses"). Kids: Can you make up a song about your dreams? Also, have you ever felt like you just never wanted to let go of someone, like the singer in "One More Hug"?
