Rocketship Run is an all-time favorite CD for library patrons and for storytime music. (In fact, everything by Laurie Berkner is very popular.) The title song is really fun to play for kids. It has an upbeat beginning, “5-4-3-2-1 blastoff!”, which is repeated throughout the song. Each verse includes an action kids can participate in, such as spinning around the sun, dancing on the moon, and jumping from star to star. Use this as a lead in to any space related activities, storytimes or lessons. It is also great for young children to begin learning to count backwards.
