Magic Mornings with Danielle 

Bedtime Beats: Down By the Bay

  • 8:30 am Thursday, March 29th, 2018 by Danielle

This week’s book for Bedtime Beats started as a song by Raffi (‘Down by the Bay’) – then was turned into a book…and now, it’s getting the mashup treatment as I mix it up with ‘Independent’ by Webbie.

I LOVE your suggestions for rhyming books that you want to see me rap – so keep them coming!! Email me at…

Bedtime Beats: How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad

  • 8:57 pm Thursday, March 22nd, 2018 by Danielle

We love the ‘How Do Dinosaurs’ series in our house…

This week’s Bedtime Beats mashes up ‘How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad’ by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague to Silento’s ‘Whip Nae Nae’ (which is a guilty pleasure song that I don’t even feel guilty about loving). 😉

Hope you enjoy!!

I’m always looking for new (rhyming) books to rap, so if you have a suggestion – email me!!

If you’re a teacher/nurse/etc and have a group of kids you’d love me to rap to…I’m working on ways to take Bedtime Beats on the road – so stay tuned… 🙂

Bedtime Beats: Pigs Love Potatoes

  • 7:02 am Thursday, March 15th, 2018 by Danielle

Oh, look at that…my bosses told me to wear PJs to work yesterday, so I took advantage of it for this week’s Bedtime Beats!!

Here’s a cute book by Anika Denise called ‘Pigs Love Potatoes’ that I paired up with a song that just randomly popped into my head the other day for some reason – ‘Aye Bay Bay’ by Hurricane Chris…

Remember that I’m ALWAYSSS taking suggestions on new books that I can rap!! My only request is that they rhyme. 🙂

If you have ideas, email me at!!

Bedtime Beats: Parts

  • 9:03 pm Thursday, March 8th, 2018 by Danielle

So, as soon as I finished taping last week’s Bedtime Beats, a girl who I work with, Jackie, came into the studio with this book and said it is one of her absolute favorites.

After reading it once, I can totally see why – it’s SO MUCH FUN!!

Here’s Tedd Arnold’s ‘Parts’ to ‘Forever’ by Drake:

If you have a book suggestion – I’m always open!! Email me and I might pick yours next!!

Bedtime Beats: Toad on the Road

  • 3:22 pm Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 by Danielle

Another request for Bedtime Beats this week…KEEP THEM COMING!!

Scott told me that ‘Toad on the Road’ by Stephen Shaskan was the first book his son (who is now 22) ever read.

I hope he likes it mashed up with Cardi B’s ‘Bartier Cardi’…because I kinda do. 😉

Always looking for more suggestions of books that rhyme – just email me!

Bedtime Beats: Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?

  • 8:38 pm Friday, February 2nd, 2018 by Danielle

Dr. Seuss is one of the most fun when it comes to kids books, isn’t he?

This week, let’s mash ‘Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?’ up with one of my favorite songs of all time – Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It.’

I’m prepping to do a few straight weeks of suggestions from you guys…so let me know what books you want to hear (!

Bedtime Beats: Let’s Be Friends

  • 12:48 pm Thursday, January 25th, 2018 by Danielle

Did you know that it’s Literacy Week in Florida?

If you’re not grabbing a book and rapping it to your child – at least make sure you read to them every day.

And if you ARE ready to start rhyming over your favorite song…maybe this one is up your alley?

Check out ‘Let’s Be Friends’ by P.K. Hallinan to A$AP Ferg’s ‘Plain Jane’

I’ve got a couple of book suggestions I’m going to be getting to these next couple of weeks. And as always, feel free to email me to let me know which book I should tackle next –!!
