Laurie Berkner~Rocketship Run~Review and Giveaway

Posted by Secret Burkheiser at 9:15 AM
My daughter has loved music since she was itty bitty. We would listen to a few different children's cd's. She would dance and try to sing along. Once the cd was over she would move on to something else and not give the music cd a second thought, until I would play it again.

My daughter loves Noggin and loves the music that they play. I really noticed her becoming very attached to the music of the Laurie Berkner Band. She would get so excited when she would hear them on the TV. It was almost if she had radar ears or something, because she could be on the other side of the house and would come running if Laurie was singing. The Laurie Berkner Band's music videos have appeared on Noggin since 2004.



We were very fortunate to find the DVD with bonus CD of "We are the Laurie Berkner Band".
As soon as we got in the car, we had to put in the CD. She was extremely excited. Everytime we get in the car she asks for "her music". She sings along with every song. If I try and sing she fusses at me and tells me to "Stop singing momma. It is my music not yours". When we get in the house she wants the DVD playing. It plays on her TV in her room almost all day. The feature I wish they would add to it is auto start, because I have to restart it everytime it is over.
She will run around everywhere we go and sing all of the songs by heart now. She marches along the fireplace mantle singing "we are the dinosaurs marching, marching". I just giggle everytime I see her reaction to Laurie and her music because it is amazing how emgrossed my two year old with the Laurie's music.


I was just sent Laurie's new release "Rocketship Run". When it came in the mail, I showed my daughter the CD. I asked who her was on the cover. She lit up and said, "Laurie". I told her Laurie sent her this CD just to her and she had a smile from ear to ear.

It comes packed with 24 awesome songs! You can even find the lyrics to all the songs on the website.
Track Listing:
1. Rocketship Run
2. Going on a Hunt (ska)
3. Mouse in My Toolbox
4. Candy Cane Jane
5. All Around My Room
6. One More Stop on the Train
7. Going On a Hunt (blues)
8. Jump and Fly
9. Pigbasket
10. Five Days Old
11. Mr. Bassman (and Piano Girl)
12. Winter Lullaby
13. Let's Samba
14. Going on a Hunt (conga)
15. My Blue Sailboat
16. Balance Beam
17. Thunderstorm
18. Fast and Slow (The Rabbit and the Turtle)
19. Going on a Hunt (jig)
20. Farm Song (That's What I Did on the Farm)
21. Nona
22. Walk Along the River
23. Going on a Hunt (hand jive)
24. Fly Me To The Moon

Wow! Is all I can say about Laurie Berkner's new cd Rocketship Run. You can purchase the CD for only $15.00 on Laurie Berkner's website.

I was wondering how she met Susie (the other lady in the band) and it says: Susie met Laurie Berkner over 10 years ago when they were both working at New York City's Rockefeller University. Laurie was a preschool music teacher, and Susie was a research nurse.
My Chubby-huggy LOVES to dance to them, and she's chubby, she needs to dance some more!
