About This Audible Original

Laurie Berkner and the Laurie Berkner Band have filled countless venues nationwide with adoring fans, selling millions of albums, songs, and videos. Now young listeners ages 3 to 8 can join Laurie and her buddy, Thelonious Pig (Josiah Gaffney), as she whips up yummy food, songs, and stories in Laurie Berkner’s Song and Story Kitchen. Each chapter of this whimsical Audible Original features a different food and tells a new story set in the magical world of Juniper Fields with Laurie's friends: Oscar Beebee the bumblebee, Layla Meeska the mouse, Tallulah Jones the dinosaur, and ferret cousins Victor Vito and Freddie Vasco.

Along with original new music, fans will hear recordings of some of the Laurie Berkner Band’s greatest hits, with Susie Lampert on keyboard, Bob Golden on drums and percussion, Brady Rymer on bass, and several special guest musicians. In addition to learning gentle lessons through Laurie’s storytelling and upbeat songs, families will receive a free PDF of Laurie’s favorite recipes. There’s even a musical bonus chapter at the end!

Cover art designed by Eliza Sturgeon.

About the Creator and Performer

Recognized as “the undisputed queen of kindie rock” by USA Today, Laurie Berkner is a singer, songwriter, lyricist, author, and the founder of her own record label, Two Tomatoes Records, LLC. She has released 12 best-selling albums that have garnered her many awards, including the NAPPA Gold Award and a Cynopsis Kids Imagination Award. As the first recording artist to perform in music videos on Nick Jr., she regularly appeared on Jack's Big Music Show, and helped to develop Sing It, Laurie!, an animated series on Sprout TV. Currently Laurie’s music videos can be seen on Universal Kids’ Sprout House. Two of her DVDs, We Are…The Laurie Berkner Band and Party Day!, have reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Music Video chart. In addition, Laurie is the author of several children’s books, most recently for Simon & Schuster, and has written the music and lyrics for three Off-Broadway children’s musicals: Wanda’s Monster (2013), The Amazing Adventures of Harvey and the Princess (2014), and Interstellar Cinderella (2017).

"This series really comes from my heart," says Laurie, who is thrilled to be working with Audible. "I love cooking, eating and growing food, and for years I have had dreams of doing a children’s series that takes place in a fantastic kitchen. I have also wanted to bring the characters in my songs to life through stories and use my songs in those stories as if each one were a mini-musical. And here it is!"

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 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.

Great for young kids!

These are great stories and music for toddlers to elementary school kids. The production values and the writing of both are great.
