they are 6, 4 and 3 and we need some diversity in our music collection! I'm looking for a gentle introduction plus something that has some great songs to sing along too - not nursery rhymes but more like camp fire songs

Great classical music for kiddies is the carnival of the animals by saint saens, beautiful uplifting music.

Beethoven's fifth first movement. (AKA The noisy one by DS2.)

Very late to this thread but if anyone is still interested we love the Putumayo record label. They have a whole kids section with albums of music from all over the world. We particularly love their Animal Playground one.
