Earlier this month, I mentioned that the DEFTONES were about to get lullabied, and as of today it's happened. LULLABY VERSIONS OF DEFTONES (get it on iTunes) has been released by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star as a part of their popular, and fast-growing lineup of lullabies (currently 89 titles). The Rock Father has the full rundown on the tracklisting below. If your baby is a little rocker, you'll love this one!

I thought it would be a cute special for my daughter to watch.
With all the recent political rumblings about the funding of PBS, the importance and value of public broadcasting has been the subject of much discussion. As I've noted many times here in the past, the educational programming of PBS KIDS is a daily staple here in The Rock Father house. While I grew up on SESAME STREET, my daughters are learning not only from the familiar characters that inhabit the 'Street, but also from PBS KIDS fixtures like CAILLOU, SUPER WHY!, WORDWORLD, and my 3-year-old's new favorite show (practically an obsession), DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD. They're far from alone, as September ratings are out and reveal that six of the top ten shows among youngsters ages 2-5 are on PBS KIDS.
