We love watching her you-tube channel and singing and dancing to her music (whether we are at home or driving in our car). But, did you know that Laurie has a couple of children’s books out, too?
We are the Dinosaurs was our first children’s book by Laurie Berkner and now we are enjoying the adorable story, Pillowland. What we love about Pillowland is that it is a whimsical adventure story with a soothing and relaxing tone. We love pretending “we are riding a pillow train… Choo Choo!” A perfect bedtime story. It is one of our new favorites and I think it would be one of your new bedtime favorites, too.

TOUR GUIDE by CHERI MAGILL
“Somewhere between the serene estro-pop of Sarah McLachlan, the angsty girl-woman guitar-rock of Michelle Branch, and the hushed playfulness of the country diva of your choice (Shania, Faith, et al), Cheri Magill radiates the kind of natural warmth and personal connectivity some of the above have paid handlers millions for.”
Let’s face it going out to dinner with the kids is always an adventure. We love going out to eat as a family and enjoying our local restaurants with the kids.
You know what is really awesome? Is going out to eat and the kids meals are FREE! Yes, Free! Some restaurants feature FREE kids meals on certain nights of the week (some restrictions apply). Check out our features below:
How many times did you have to wake up your teen this morning? Two, three, four times?
My 15-year-old’s alarm went off for a solid half hour before I got him to roll out of bed — and I know I’m not the only mom of teenagers dealing with similar struggles. Teen sleep can be frustrating and difficult to understand. Teens often get inadequate sleep during the week, then sleep in late on the weekends. Typically, this is due to a shift in biological patterns and school start times.
DON’T JUST BE SILLY THIS ST. PATRICK’S DAY, BE SILLY McGILLY!
“St. Patrick’s Day Fun for your Wee Little One” Silly McGilly is intended for families with young children between the ages of 3 and 9. Because on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish and we are loving this adorable tale.
Beanstalk Jack, a musical retelling of the classic tale of “Jack and the Beanstalk” adapted as a folk-rock opera for today’s families is one of our new favorite cd’s.
“Paper Canoe Company creates music and stories that make kids feel like grownups, and grownups feel like kids.”
The music is uplifting and fun and of course makes you want to dance along which is always so important with a children’s album! Beanstalk Jack tells the story of “Jack and the Beanstalk” with the addition of a refreshing girl-meets-boy twist, a tribute to the spirit of optimism, and more than a hint of youthful rebellion.
