Kids' Music Legend returns with an all new album: Laurie Berkner's Favorite Classic Kids' Songs {Review & Giveaway}

Best-selling children's recording artist and preschool television favorite Laurie Berkner is ready to rock with her upcoming release of her two-disc album, Laurie Berkner's Favorite Classic Kids' Songs, on October 23rd.
Laurie Berkner has made it obvious that she knows just what kids are looking for in music, as she has been able to captivate audiences everywhere.  This new album includes 51 well-loved children's songs, plus six "bonus" tracks of favorite Laurie Berkner originals. Says Laurie Berkner, "I grew up with many of these songs, and I'm sure parents and grandparents will remember a lot of them from their own childhoods. I'm excited about sharing these classics with kids who may not have heard them before and also introducing my versions of songs that might already be family favorites. In the true folk tradition, I've added some of my own lyrics and my own spin to many of these traditional songs. I've kept a folk or rock feel for most of the numbers, with a little reggae thrown in here and there for fun!" Highlights include a rollicking "When The Saints Go Marching In," a "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" that hits a home run in the third inning with its swinging jazz style, and a funky, hip-hop take on "This Old Man," with additional rhymes penned by Laurie.
I love this album.  It has all of the classic songs that children love and that get passed from generation to generation.  These songs are fun, entertaining, and something that all who listen to can enjoy.  It is only fitting for Laurie Berkner to have such an amazing album that showcases her amazing talent as a childrens' artist by bringing a whole new life to the long list of traditional songs we all know.  Each song is unique and has been an instant hit with my four kids.  Good job Laurie and thank you for such a wonderful album for our family to enjoy!
A Little More About Laurie:
A former preschool teacher by day and indie rocker by night, Laurie Berkner started marketing her music more than fifteen years ago from 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 crowned "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 the episodes of the channel's Jack's Big Music Show (now available on the NOGGIN video subscription app). She currently stars in the animated musical short-form series Sing it, Laurie! on the Sprout preschool channel, makes regular appearances on Sprout's Sunny Side Up Show, and is a frequent presence on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live channel.
 Laurie Berkner's Favorite Classic Kids' Songs will be available wherever favorite albums are sold, at www.laurieberkner.com, and at all digital retailers, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and more.
