Well, this is cute: Jack White’s Third Man Records and Light in the Attic Records have announced a very special package for kids (of all ages, if you feel so inclined) inspired by Sesame Street’s In Harmony albums, among other things, that’s out November 6 via the latter label and currently available for pre-order.

This Record Belongs To______ is a compilation, turntable set, and coloring book that’s an “antidote to your standard kids compilations,” reads the press release. “You won’t find boy bands, princesses, or purple dinosaurs here. Instead the record consists of two halves — an upbeat side for daytime dancin’ and a mellow side for bedtime lullabies. Among the many gems featured include songs from Carole King, Woody Guthrie, Donovan, Harry Nilsson, Jerry Garcia, Nina Simone, Kermit The Frog and more.”
