Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Much like They Might Be Giants, Dan Zane, and Ralph Covert (Ralph's World), Laurie Berkner creates children's music that adults might be compelled to sneak a listen to when their kids aren't around. This vivacious performer is enjoying phenomenal Raffi-like success, thanks to her award-winning CDs, appearances on Noggin, sold-out stage shows, and high-profile gigs at the White House and on the morning TV talk show circuit. This high-spirited collection, recorded with Berkner Band bassist Brian Mueller (Laurie’s husband) and keyboardist Susie Lampert, includes 11 music videos that provide a delightful introduction to Berkner's whimsical world. Songs such as "I'm Gonna Catch You" contain irresistible rhythms and catchy choruses, and Berkner's imaginative lyrics invite listener interaction. Kids will eagerly contribute animal noises during fan-favorite "Pig on Her Head," and fill in the blanks on Mueller’s rendition of "O Susannah." A lovely a cappella "Moon Moon Moon" brings this joyous program to a comforting close. For an encore, the DVD is packaged with a five-song audio CD, including the previously unreleased frolic "Walk Along the River" (included on the DVD) and "The Happiest Song I Know" with Tom Chapin (which is not on the DVD).
