Our top twelve picks in Christian kids' audio products makes for an eclectic dozen, with some discs containing songs only, some with stories and songs, and some that might hold a few surprises.

We concentrated on releases that focus mainly on the pre-'tween set, with a couple of notable exceptions that are designed for kids but can be lots of fun for the whole family. We scanned store shelves to determine what released in 2006 that kept kids (and moms) happy and singing together at the top of their lungs, especially in the car.

Many children's album stick to the tried-and-true formula of getting kids to sing their own versions of the most popular contemporary Christian songs and modern worship songs. However, some branched beyond the norm and came up with their own catchy tunes we love! Here is our Top Twelve list for 2006:

Kids Praise! Sunday School Songs 2

Kids Praise! Company
Maranatha Music



It's always fun to bring back the songs you listened to when you were a kid, and Sunday School Songs 2 serves up a heaping helping. Old favorites include "His Banner Over Me Is Love," "Zaccheus Was a Wee Little Man," "Give Me Oil in My Lamp," "The Wise Man Built His House," and the classic "Jesus Loves Me." The 15-song collection goes a step further and introduces children to some of the best-loved hymns, too, with "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name," "Blessed Assurance," and "This Is My Father's World." Adults and children can enjoy this one together, and the old songs will hopefully inspire parents to share stories with their kids of their own spiritual heritage.
