Parents’ Choice Gold Award: “American Playground is a celebration of the music that helped create and distill the American dream, and this fine new CD is a welcomed reminder of simpler times, when America itself was growing up.”
Parents’ Choice Gold Award: “These exquisite and oh-so-tender songs from the heart, culled from diverse cultures of Latin America-Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela – sooth and smooth the way to dreamland, no matter how old the listener.”
Parents Magazine (PDF): “Putumayo Kids introduces your little cowpoke to the songs of the Wild-ish West with Cowboy Playground. The 12-track CD includes some of today’s most popular children’s singers performing classic tunes about life on the range, such as “Don’t Fence Me In.”“Yet another solid compilation by the folks at Putumayo World Music. Of course, Cowboy Playground isn’t meant to be a definitive overview of cowboy music, but it does serve as an entertaining sampler of western tunes, old and new.” – About.com
