DinoRock is the missing link in children's entertainment, featuring lively original music, giant dinosaur puppets and sing-along lessons about dinosaurs, ecology and natural history. Puppeteer Ingrid Crepeau and singer-songwriter Michele Valeri have been honored by the Emmy Awards, Parent's Choice magazine and the American Library Association for their work. Together, they create interactive musical celebrations that animate the world of science through the one subject that seems to excite everyone's imagination - DINOSAURS!
Their newest show, Junkyard Pirates, recently won a 2008 grant from the Jim Henson Foundation. This show teaches young children about the importance of recycling and will feature songs about recycling, spoken word, and audience participation.

The Great Dinosaur Mystery
An audio adventure that introduces children to the world of natural sciences. It follows a lady paleontologist, Dr. Vander Plastercaster and the stubborn Detective Joe Kafootsie, from the halls of a science museum to the Gobi Desert, to the Western plains when they were really Wild.
"Smart, tuneful and wildly imaginative," that's how the Washington Post describes Dreamosaurus. It's the story of a little boy named Nelson who loves to dream about dinosaurs...that's why his mom calls him a dreamosaurus. Lately, Nelson's dreams have been getting a little scary.
