Gwyneth Paltrow’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear Grammy Nomination


Tonight or tomorrow night record yourself reading your child’s favorite bedtime story.

Tell me, is your recording worthy of a Grammy? I’ll bet it is!

Gwyneth Paltrow, whose work I am apt to admire, has a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album for Children.

She recorded Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear.

Tony Shalhoub recorded Cricket in Times Square and is also nominated.

Let’s get your name added to the list next year, ok?

Just for fun: How many of the Grammy nominations below do you recognize? Who might you have nominated instead?

UPDATE (9 Feb 2009): Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t win Best Spoken Word Album For Children, Bill Harley won. For Best Musical Album for Children, They Might Be Giants won. Yay and congrats!
