Happy Cinco de Mayo cool moms! Along with enjoying some yummy guacamole, a frosty beverage, and maybe even decorating the place with some festive decor, Cinco de Mayo needs some fun tunes too, right? Lucky for us, kids’ music favorite Lucky Diaz has just issued a Spanish-language CD of kids’ songs, and my pick for this week is joyful, bouncy, and perfect for those of us whose Spanish is a bit rusty. http://bit.ly/10gJ9Xm
When Mother’s Day comes around, spring is most definitely in the air. Ah, thoughts of long days outside, beach trips and picnics. And what is one very important component of all these activities? Music! http://bit.ly/YvfOND
The Walkman seems like a lifetime ago, especially now that any kind of music is available at our fingertips through all kinds of music services, plenty of them free. Here are our very favorites, so you can figure out which is right for you. http://bit.ly/YpiVqq
Besides the ushering in of spring, one other reason to love April is that it is the ASPCA’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. I love how this organization helps out our furry, feathered, and scaley friends in so many way. http://bit.ly/151RZ2S
The last time I went to a live music concert was… oh, alright, I can’t even remember. I’m sure I’m not the only parent with that answer. And that’s exactly why I’m intrigued by EVNTLIVE. http://bit.ly/14T66Hz
If there is anything I want my kids to remember about Monday’s tragedy at the Boston Marathon, it is how many people came together to help in any way, from aiding the injured, to showing love and support from across the globe. Today’s free download reminds us to all stand together to support each other, a message we should all take to heart. http://bit.ly/14H4xwi
If you’ve read Cool Mom Picks for any length of time, you probably know how much we adore the music of the Okee Dokee Brothers. So, when the duo asked me to check out the new release from their friend, Paul Spring, I decided to give it a spin.
Great news for all you faithful Windows phone folks, especially if you love your tunes. The uber-popular music streaming service Pandora is offering not only free, but ad-free, streaming for Windows phone users. http://bit.ly/14hrENZ
We see it in the light sky after dinner. We feel it in the air that doesn’t require us to zip up coats anymore. And we can see it in the green buds poking their heads out of the earth. Spring is here! Celebrate its arrival with this pretty song from a long-time Cool Mom Picks kindie favorite, Mary Kaye. http://bit.ly/143q2r1
Every day is Autism Awareness Day for families who have a child on the spectrum. But during the month of April, which is Autism Awareness Month, we all can raise our voices to let the world know about these special kids. http://bit.ly/13IVJFZ

Skateboarding plus music equals sheer awesome, which is exactly how we feel about CMP-fave kindie rock band The Not-Its premiering their new skateboarding music video right here on Cool Mom Picks today, along with a free MP3 download for our readers and a rad giveaway.
