Colonel Purple Turtle Review and Giveaway!

I had never heard of the band Rocknoceros (pronounced like rhinoceros) until I reviewed this CD, but they’ve been on the children’s music scene since 2005.  In fact, for the past four years they’ve won the “Best Children’s Music Artist” award in D.C.  I’m not surprised – Little Miss has left Colonel Purple Turtle in her CD player for weeks now! 

This CD is about the Colonel and all of his friends at the Soggy Bog.  Since the band has been best friends since childhood, this topic is close to their hearts!  In addition to the theme of friendship, they delve into topics like echolocation, the power of the sun, and the life cycle of ladybugs.  I liked the fact that so many different types of music are used in the CD.  In addition to a violin-viola-cello string ensemble, you’ll hear jazz, a barbershop quartet, Latin music, a recorder ensemble, and acoustic guitar.  Not to mention some good old rock and roll!

I also think it’s great that there is the option to purchase a book to go along with the CD.  Missy Sheldrake illustrated the book about the members of Soggy Bog and how they work together to preserve their world. 

BUY IT:  Colonel Purple Turtle will be available at,,, and iTunes September 13, 2011. 

WIN IT:  One lucky US reader can win their own copy of this great CD!  This is for the CD only, not the companion book.
