Musician Laurie Berkner has been called "the queen of children's music," for her contributions to Kindie rock, a genre aimed at children under the age of 10. Since appearing on "The Today Show" in 2001, Laurie has performed at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and the White House Easter Egg Roll. Now she is taking her popular songs to the page with a new series of picture books. In this post, Laurie gives Kidsreads an exclusive look at WE ARE THE DINOSAURS, which is now in stores.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the...fiercest of them all? Today on the Kidsreads blog, we're taking a closer look at one of our favorite series: The Nocturnals, written by Tracey Hecht. In this fun, critically acclaimed middle grade series, three unlikely friends --- Dawn, a serious fox; Tobin, a sweet pangolin; and Bismark, the loud-mouthed sugar glider --- band together to solve the unpredictable mysteries of the night as the Nocturnal Brigade. In the third book, THE FALLEN STAR, which is now in stores, Dawn, Tobin and Bismark learn that all of the forest's pomelos have been poisoned! As the team sets out to investigate, they encounter a mysterious aye-aye named Iris, who claims monsters from the moon are to blame. But is Iris friend or foe? In celebration of the release of the third Nocturnals book, sugar glider Bismark stopped by our blog to interview the scariest villains of the forest and determine who is the fiercest.
