I wrote this post on behalf of The Laurie Berkner Band and their PR Company. Mama to 5 Blessings received product in exchange for an honest review. This is not a sponsored review and all views and opinions are of my own and were not influenced in any way.
When my oldest was born nine years ago and myself a new mom I had so much to learn. One of those was to find out the hottest kids shows I stumbled across a fantastic singer, Lauire Berkner on Nick Jr. who was featured in nearly all episodes of the channel’s Jack’s Big Music Show. My son was immediately memorized from the moment on. Fast forwarding all five of my children enjoy her music, yes even my nine year old!
Now Laurie Berkner currently stars in the animated musical short-form series Sing It, Laurie! on the Sprout preschool channel (owned by NBC) and makes regular appearances on Sprout’s Sunny Side Up Show. Yes our family watches this too!
For years we have enjoyed her on television and now we are enjoying her on her new CD – The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection.
The Ultimate Laurie Berkner Band Collection is the follow-up compilation album to The Best Of The Laurie Berkner Band, which has consistently been a top-seller on the children’s music chart since it was released in 2010!

The moment I received the CD in the mail my children could not get me to open it quick enough and pop it in the CD player. We spend quit a bit of our time in the car so we leave this CD in the car and listen to it just about every car ride. We love the upbeat musical instruments and lyrics of each song. Laurie’s songs are mostly made up of small stories that hold children’s attention with the fun and silly lyrics. Their favorite song on this CD is The Cat Came Back from Whaddaya Think of That? (they call it the cat song). Whether children just want to listen to music in the car, at home, dance and get the wiggles out this is definitely the right music CD to do it to!
