Bestselling children's music star Laurie Berkner, called "The queen of children's music" by People and "the Adele of the preschool crowd" by the New York Times, can also list author as one of her of achievements with Simon & Schuster publishing PILLOWLAND, a picture book based upon the lyrics of her hit song of the same name from the album Laurie Berkner Lullabies.  With art by Camille Garoche, PILLOWLAND is a great bedtime story that compliments Berkner's repertoire of lullabies and other songs for children. Berkner's "Pillowland" lyrics accompanied with Garoche's illustrations create a feather-fluffed dream world where bedtime is always a grand adventure within the pages of this book.

A former preschool music teacher, Berkner has garnered a reputation as an outstanding performer of Kindie Rock, a style of children's music the blends a singer's adult perspectives and sensibilities with themes aimed at children under 10 years old.  She has released twelve award-winning albums, written the lyrics for three Off-Broadway children's musicals, tours the country performing with The Laurie Berkner Band, and was the first recording artist to ever perform in music videos on the Nick Jr cable channel. To highlight her newest accomplishment, the children's picture book PILLOWLAND based upon one of her fan favorite songs, Berkner has kindly provided A Geek Daddy with a prize pack to giveaway.
