“We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching…We are the dinosaurs, whad da ya think of that?”
Laurie Berkner is one of our all-time favorite children’s artists. Her songs remind us of happy, dancing days when my children were much younger. Days of Noggin and nursery rhymes. And mornings my children would listen to their morning room time CDs filled with Laurie Berkner, the Harrow Family’s Sing the Word and Veggie Tales.
But let me tell you. We are still dancing and singing with Laurie Berkner because now she is releasing Favorite Classic Kids’ Songs. Classics that you and I grew up on and our parents and grandparents sang to us at bedtime. This album is made up almost entirely of classic songs. Plus, there are a hand full of our favorite Laurie Berkner songs as well.
I fully believe that classic songs like these help children to learn and grow in so very many ways. Just like art, music blesses all the other homeschool subjects! These are songs all children should know!
See? We are still marching to We Are the Dinosaurs, The Cat Came Back and more!

Says Laurie Berkner, “I grew up with many of these songs, and I’m sure parents and grandparents will remember a lot of them from their own childhoods. I’m excited about sharing these classics with kids who may not have heard them before and also introducing my versions of songs that might already be family favorites. In the true folk tradition, I’ve added some of my own lyrics and my own spin to many of these traditional songs. I’ve kept a folk or rock feel for most of the numbers, with a little reggae thrown in here and there for fun!”
“A kind of sippy-cup Sheryl Crow.”
— Time Magazine
