In her latest children’s book, which features her popular song “Monster Boogie” (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers), kindie singer-songwriter Laurie Berkner has teamed up with illustrator Ben Clanton (of Narwhal and Jelly book series fame) to encourage kids to face their fears, get up, and dance.

The sheet music for the song is printed on the book’s back cover — or for the musically illiterate among us, you can listen to Berkner’s “Monster Boogie” video on YouTube.

Recommended for 4 to 8 year olds, Berkner’s book features a brother and sister trying to go to sleep, but are awakened by a giant monster — with, gasp!, green teeth — who exhorts the kids to lighten up, “boogie” and “wiggle.” And that’s good advice for readers of any age.

“Monster Boogie” book by Laurie Berkner, $17.99, Amazon.com.
