Texts and Tunes: Laurie Berkner Band's Rocketship Run

Texts and Tunes: The Laurie Berkner Band's Rocketship Run

If your tot spends any time at all in front of the Noggin network, you are likely to be familiar with The Laurie Berkner Band. The band's videos are often featured in the network's "Move to the Movement" segments, as well as the popular Jack's Big Music Show. The band's fifth CD, Rocketship Run ($14), will get your feet tapping and your lil ones dancing with its catchy tunes, funny lyrics and upbeat tempo, which Berkner calls a human temp — 100 to 120 beats a minute, the same rhythm as walking. The former nursery school music teacher's songs encourage self-expression while subtly teaching small lessons through their lyrics. The CD's folk rock songs, including the title track, will become staples in your car's stereo system, without you feeling like you are succumbing to kiddie music.
