Holiday Gift Guide: "The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection" {Review & Giveaway} (closed)

If there is one name that is super well known in the children's music genre it's LAURIE BERKNER!  The Laurie Berkner Band is so successful and beloved by so many that it is hard not to have seen or heard about them!  Whether you are watching a children's television station, listening to a children's radio station, or maybe even at a play date--their songs are everywhere!  And now you can get your hands on an AMAZING holiday gift with The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection CD!!
The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection is a compilation of some of the band's greatest hits and a follow-up to The Best Of The Laurie Berkner Band CD.  The album is FULL of top-charting songs such as Walk Along The River, Family, and more!
Says Laurie, "As soon as I released The Best Of The Laurie Berkner Band, I couldn't wait for my next compilation to come out -- because there were so many songs that I felt should have also been included on that album! Now that The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection is finally here, I am thrilled that it will not only include those hits, but also songs I've written since then that have become classics. With a total of 22 favorite songs, this really is the 'Ultimate' collection!"
A former preschool music teacher by day and indie rocker by night, Laurie Berkner started selling her music over fifteen years ago out of her living room on her own label, Two Tomatoes Records. She is now widely recognized as a pioneer in the "kindie" music genre and was dubbed "The undisputed queen of kindie rock" by USA Today. The Wall Street Journal noted, "Her music is distinctive because it speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups." Laurie was the first artist to ever appear in music videos on Nick Jr. and was featured in nearly all of the episodes of the channel's Jack's Big Music Show. She currently stars in the animated musical short-form series Sing It, Laurie! on the Sprout preschool channel and makes regular appearances on Sprout's Sunny Side Up Show. The Laurie Berkner Band features Laurie Berkner, vocals/guitar; Susie Lampert, keyboards; Brady Rymer, bass; and Bobby Golden, drums/percussion.
My kids ABSOLUTELY loved The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection CD, but I wasn't really expecting much different.  With so many wonderful songs and various CDs of Laurie's being represented on the album, it was a sure hit!  The moment we put on the CD, we are up dancing and singing and enjoying ourselves.  Laurie Berkner has the perfect voice that really "speaks" to children.  Her songs are not cheesy, over complicated, or annoying.  Instead they offer a real connection to her young audience and deliver powerful messages in fun and creative ways.
