Publisher's Summary

Laurie Berkner’s Song and Story Kitchen weaves Laurie’s stories, original music, and age-appropriate themes into her fun-filled kitchen where she whips up yummy food, songs, and stories along with her good friend and sidekick, Thelonius Pig (Josiah Gaffney). 

Each chapter in the multi-hour audio series revolves around a different food and story from the world of Juniper Fields - the magical home of Laurie's friends Oscar Beebee the bumblebee, Layla Meeska the mouse, Tallulah Jones the dinosaur, and ferret cousins Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco. From there, Laurie adds in some of the greatest hits by The Laurie Berkner Band (with Susie Lampert - keyboard, Bob Golden - drums and percussion, and Brady Rymer - bass), brand-new recordings, and story-based entertainment for kids aged 3-8. 

Those familiar with Berkner's iconic songs, such as "We Are the Dinosaurs", "Victor Vito", "The Goldfish (Let's Go Swimming)", and "I'm Gonna Catch You" will hear the music throughout the series and recognize themes and imagery playfully reimagined in the vibrant world of Juniper Fields. Important lessons and takeaway themes include: Choose to be Kind, Express Yourself, Find a Way to Help, Self-Confidence, and Be Curious. Laurie Berkner is one of most popular children’s entertainers in the US. She and her band, The Laurie Berkner Band, have filled countless venues nationwide with adoring fans and sold millions of albums, songs, and videos. 

Meet Laurie's Friends from Juniper Fields: 

Oscar Beebee the bumblebee loves to read and spell.

Layla Meeska the mouse loves to build things.

Tallulah Jones the dinosaur loves to sing and make music.

Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco love to invent things and investigate their world.

Very entertaining for my almost 4 year old.

Great stories and songs to match! My daughter has been loving listening and sometimes doing the movements to this at home and in the car.

Phenomenal!!!

My 4 year old and 9 year old both enjoyed listening to this. It has kept them completely enthralled and off of their electronic devices in the car! We were all so sad to come to the end. I hope you make another one!

So much fun!!!

We are long time Laurie Berkner fans. This was absolutely wonderful!!! The whole family enjoyed it! The songs we know and love with fun, new stories. Endearing stories. We loved the characters. And the things T Pig and Laurie whipped up in the kitchen during story time inspired us to get in the kitchen too. Highly recommend!

love it!!

Every one of my four kiddos loved this listen! My 1.5 old would repeat words like Hooray! or Hi, etc and even my ten year old said he "didn't mind if we wanted to listen to it" which in preteen means he likes it! My middles and I sing along to the songs and find ourselves singing them throughout the day. I thought the concept of a song and story kitchen was clever, and Laurie and Thallonius have darling voices that were a pleasure to listen to. I can't wait until another of her works comes out!

good for the kids

lighthearted and fun, good for kids

Sometimes i need to listen to something that i would not normally listen too because i know the kids need something more lighthearted

don't expect complex, don't expect depth. Just expect fun and lightheartedness.

My 3-year-old Is Loving It

Have you ever heard a 3-year-old trying to say, "Thelonius"? It's really cute. My little boy has been asking to listen to this while we eat lunch. We know a lot of Laurie Berkner's songs already, and it's fun to listen to them woven through stories. I like that each chapter is self-contained with the same opening and closing cues. It's nice to be able to have a logical stopping point, and the repetition of each open and close is actually fun for my child to hear again and again (rather than boring). Super happy to snag this among the November Originals. #KidFriendly #Carefree #Magical #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

UPDATE: The kids and I made it to the end, and the last track on the audiobook is around 1.5 hours long, and it's all the songs from each of the previous chapters. And it's not just the abbreviated versions that are woven into the stories. It's the full songs. So, this is basically like getting a free music CD (plus) with purchase. So cool!

Nailed it.

Laurie Berkner's Song and Story Kitchen is one of the first Audible Originals to knock it out of the park. My kid's (age 6 and 4) have listened to it virtually on repeat since I downloaded it. They are singing the songs, and acting out the stories in the car. I wish there were similar books/originals like this. Laurie Berkner is a musical magician for kids.

My son chose this over TV!

the songs and characters are adorable, and engaging. the topics are age appropriate (my son's 5) and the language is easy to understand. he asks for this every time we get in the car.

Laurie Berkner is Awesome!

As always Laurie Berkner has satisfied my little listener. This is engaging with familiar songs and even new songs and we love the multiple accents Laurie uses for all of her animal characters. T pig is very cute and fits perfect with Laurie’s multiple animal friends.

We especially love trying the snacks.

We hope there are more audibles by Laurie in the near future.
