Win Dan Zanes and Friends' new CD
Mon Nov 9
We suspect you already know that we here at Time Out Kids are big fans of Dan Zanes . Perhaps the coolest thing about the iconic kiddie crooner is that he tackles myriad musical styles, from folk to punk to rock 'n' roll. But with his new album, 76 Trombones , he goes where he's never gone before: the Great White Way. Not only does he cover classic Broadway tunes, he welcomes a number of Main Stem regulars as guests, including Matthew Broderick and Brian Stokes Mitchell. We're giving five copies of the CD in honor of its November 17th release. Click here to enter to win!

Earlier this year, they celebrated the 40th anniversary of Eric Carle's the Very Hungry Caterpillar and Dr. Seuss's birthday . Wonder which iconic kids' character is next in line for a tribute.
