Summer Road Trip Playlist

Hit the road with our annual family-friendly summer playlist.

Reading lists. Math facts. Good music.
Just because school's out, doesn't mean your kids are going to stop learning. For lessons on songs the whole family can love, tune into our free summer playlist, curated by Kidbits' mini editors Harper (pictured left, age 7) and Grant (age 10).  
Sail Into The Sun // Gentlemen Hall
Harper: I bet I could play this on the piano.
Grant: Except you're forgetting that you don't play the piano?
Flowers In Your Hair // The Lumineers
Harper: This is a pretty song!
Grant: I feel like this is a great song for fourth graders.
Little Wildflower // Andrew Simple
Harper:  This one is good for Mom.
Grant: Yeah Mom, we have to grow up!
