A recent discovery of mine, but an artist who's been around for a long time is Susie Tallman. I especially like the albums Children's Songs: A Collection of Childhood Favorites and Let's Go! Travel, Camp and Car Songs, but she has many others including Classic Nursery Rhymes which features some diverse arrangements of traditional nursery rhymes.
Earlier in March, Jodie who blogs at Growing Book by Book: Nurturing Our Youngest Readers wrote about kids' songs that build literacy skills.
