Pillowland by Laurie Berkner

Do you love Laurie Berkner as much as we do?

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.
