Something Sweet, Nina Zeitlin’s ’03 family/kids’ album, was named in the Top 10 on NPR’s “2009 Best Music for Kids and Their Families.” In a story for WXPN’sKids Corner in Philadelphia, host Kathy O’Connell noted that she’d remember 2009 as “the gold standard in kids’ music,” and included Zeitlin’s musical ensemble, King Pajama, as one of the groups “whose kid-centric themes (love of the library, train rides, ice cream) provide a clue to their intended audience, since the songs themselves work for everyone.”

Zeitlin, a sociology major at Wesleyan, sang, recorded and produced the collection, which also won a 2009 Parents’ Choice Award, and was included in Time Out New York Kids as a “Top 10 Best Children’s CD of 2009.”
