Children's Songs

It has come to my attention that it is hard to find collections of high-quality children’s songs.  Parents might like to learn new songs or be reminded of songs from their childhood that they can use with their kids, in the car, waiting in line, before going to bed, or just any old time.  I’ll start a list of classic children songs here; many versions I am sure are available on YouTube and elsewhere on the internet.
