Magic Mornings with Danielle 

Bedtime Beats: Llama Llama Holiday Drama

  • 9:08 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

Sometimes, I hold on to a song that I LOVE until I can find the book that will be a perfect fit.

I’ve had Run the Jewels ‘Blockbuster Night Part 1’ sitting in my back pocket for monthsssss…

I realized it was totally worth the wait the second I started reading Anna Dewdney’s ‘Llama Llama Holiday Drama’…

Here you go!!

Got a book you want me to rap? Send it on down to the studio or email me and let me know what it is –!!

Bedtime Beats: Twas the Night Before Christmas

  • 9:07 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

I wonder what Clement Moore – the guy who wrote ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ in the 1800s – would say if he found out that I just rapped his book over Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ for this week’s Bedtime Beats…

If there’s a book that you think should be included in Bedtime Beats…email me – I’m ALWAYS looking for new ideas!!

Bedtime Beats: How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas?

  • 9:06 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

This week’s Bedtime Beats has a holiday spin – with dinosaurs…of course. #BoyMom

Check out Jane Yolen and Mark Teague’s ‘How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas’ to Migos ft. Cardi B ‘MotorSport’…

If you have a book you want me to rap – email me at or send it on over to the studio (just make sure it rhymes)!!

Bedtime Beats: Little Blue Truck’s Christmas

  • 9:04 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

Guilty as charged…I LOVE the ‘Little Blue Truck’ books!!

This week’s Bedtime Beats takes Alice Shertle’s ‘Little Blue Truck’s Christmas’ and mashes it up with the ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ theme song (you thought I wouldn’t go there, didn’t you?!)…

If there’s a book that you’d love to hear me rap (make sure it rhymes!!) send me an email…or just drop it off at the studio like Kenzie and Cam did this week – thanks, guys!! ❤

Bedtime Beats: Nobunny’s Perfect

  • 9:04 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

Somehow, I’ve made it this far without putting my absolute FAVORITE rap song together with a kid’s book…how rude of me!!

Check out Anna Dewdney’s ‘Nobunny’s Perfect’ to Dr. Dre and Eminem ‘Forgot About Dre’ (and don’t even pretend like that’s not one of the best rap songs of all time). 😉

And thanks to Ronan for letting me borrow his book this week!!

You can always send books up to the studio if you want me to rap them…or email me if you have ideas –!!

Bedtime Beats: How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?

  • 9:03 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

We’ve got pretty much the entire ‘How Do Dinosaurs…’ line of books in our house. ❤

This week’s Bedtime Beats is a mashup of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague’s ‘How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?’ with Outkast ‘So Fresh, So Clean’ – enjoy!!

Got an idea for a book (that rhymes!!) that you’d like me to rap? Send it on down to the studio (just like Torian did with his book this week – THANK YOU!!), or email me –!!

Bedtime Beats: I’m a Dirty Dinosaur

  • 8:52 pm Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

One of my favorite rappers (Ludacris) + one of my favorite subjects (dinosaurs) = this week’s Bedtime Beats.

Check out ‘I’m a Dirty Dinosaur’ by Janeen Brian and Ann James to Ludacris ‘Get Back’…and thanks to TJ for letting me borrow one of his books this week!!

Email me if you’ve got an idea for Bedtime Beats (…especially if you have girl books in mind that rhyme (as you can tell by my plethora of books about trucks and dinosaurs, you’re dealing with a full-on #BoyMom here)!! ❤

James Corden Throws ‘Romantic’ Backseat Dinner for Kelly Clarkson and Her Hubby on ‘Carpool Karaoke’

  • 7:01 am Thursday, November 30th, 2017 by Danielle

Kelly Clarkson was the latest victim of James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ this week!!

During her episode, we found out that Kelly actually thought she’d grow up to be a marine biologist and James surprised her by picking up her hubby, Brandon, so that they could have dinner in the backseat while he drove them around.

The most underrated part though, was when she sang what will SURELY be her next single ‘Do you want the receipt, or should I put it in the bag?’ 🙂

Why is Target Charging Almost $1,000 For an UPSIDE DOWN Christmas Tree?!

  • 7:45 am Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 by Danielle

Ok, can we stop trying to mess with a good thing here?

First, people started decorating ladders as an alternative to putting up a traditional Christmas tree in their house…

Now, people are at least keeping the trees, but they’re turning them UPSIDE DOWN!!

Some people opt to just flip the tree onto it’s top like this…

#Christmas #goals ⁉️‼️⁉️ I kinda like it. #upsidedownchristmastree 🎄#trending

Busch Gardens has a New BABY GIRAFFE!!

  • 6:20 am Monday, November 27th, 2017 by Danielle

While we were busy celebrating chowing down on turkey and stuffing last Thursday, the team at Busch Gardens was busy bringing a new baby giraffe into the world!!

The ‘tiny’ little guy weighed in at 150-POUNDS and was already 6-feet tall when he was born. Celina, one of the park’s giraffes, is his mommy.

Busch Gardens posted some pictures of him to their Facebook page and say they’re letting YOU pick his name!!
