When I first found “B is for Bob” kids’ t-shirts, I thought they were so cute. Now, there is a children’s album with the same name.
B Is for Bob is a collection of original Bob Marley songs re-imagined for kids and fans of all ages!! The international musical legend’s eldest son, four-time Grammy winner Ziggy Marley, executive produced the album, which bridges the gap between the timeless Bob Marley and a new generation of kids.
Bob Marley’s music touches people of all ages. With children in mind, Ziggy has transformed 8 of his father’s songs while leaving 4 of Bob Marley’s other masterpieces untouched.
Released just in time for summer, this is the perfect album for the entire family to enjoy!
Although Ziggy is not my favorite Marley son (I like Stephen, Damian, and Ky-Mani), I had to download this album for my kids. Is it really necessary to buy a separate Bob compilation for your children rather than simply playing the originals? Probably not, but the added xylophones remind me of Baby Einstein, and the children’s voices add a pleasant touch. Perhaps this is just another attempt to sell music for a long lost musician, but I do enjoy listening to B Is for Bob. It’s never too early to introduce your kids to uplifting music of Bob Marley.
