Spinning the Child is the first sustained critical overview of the production and dissemination of recorded music for children.


It examines how ideals of ‘the child’ and ‘the family’ have been constructed through folk music, the BBC radio, by Woody Guthrie, Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Bagpuss, the contemporary children’s music industry and more.
