New Kids' Movies and Music

The Story of the Weeping Camel follows the adventures of a family of camel herders in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. One of their camels has a difficult birth and then rejects the newborn baby. They struggle to find a way to get her to accept the baby, finally deciding on a musical ceremony that requires them to locate a musician and bring him to the camels.

9 year old Samantha lives with her uncle and new aunt in New York City. As she learns about womens' rights from her aunt, she becomes more involved with a small group of orphans.
A live-action movie based on American Girls' most popular character Samantha! Every little girl will want to share Samantha's adventures in the bustling New York City of 1904.

The very sleepy Lion family tries to stay up very late at night, so they won’t miss the most spectacular meteor shower of the year.
There’s a Fly in My Soup-- Everyone reads jokes to Click the Mouse to try to make her laugh.
Pandora’s Box--Should Lionel and Leona open a mysterious box that has a "Do Not Open!" sign on it?
Also featuring opera star Denyce Graves, Monkey Pop-Up Theater, Chicken Jane, B.B. the King of Beasts, Cliff Hanger, and more BETWEEN THE LIONS favorites!

The band "blasts off" with their first studio album in over six years with Rocketship Run, a collection of 20 new songs that's the highly anticipated follow-up to her best-selling, chart-topping DVD from 2006 We Are...The Laurie Berkner Band.
Featuring new original songs written by Berkner, and her first-ever collaborations with bandmates Susie Lampert and Adam Bernstein. Additionally, fans will be thrilled to finally be able to own the title track, which has already been featured on NOGGIN for a year as well as enjoy a cover of the much-beloved standard "Fly Me to the Moon."

Presented with early animations and the story line, Jack Johnson crafted new songs that capture the emotions of Curious George as he leaves the jungle to follow the Man with the Yellow Hat. He also turned to friends Ben Harper, G. Love, and Matt Costa to contribute songs that might bridge the gap between parent and child. Joined on the record by his band (Adam Topol, Merlo Podlewski, and Zack Gill), Jack duets with three of the other songwriters (Ben Harper, G. Love, and Matt Costa), and does a cover of the White Stripes' "We're Going to Be Friends." Parents who watched Schoolhouse Rock on Saturday mornings when they were children will recognize Jack's take on the classic "Three Is a Magic Number," reinterpreted with the 3 R's as a call to protect the environment and Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Fans of Nickelodeon’s hit TV show will be drawn into the fantastic adventures of the five colorful Backyardigans. The irresistible Born to Play features guest performances from Alicia Keys, Cyndi Lauper, and Tony nominee Adam Pascal (Rent, Aida). The disc also includes bonus music from the live show “Tale of the Might Knights.”
