Colonel Purple Turtle – Rocknoceros CD and Companion Book {Review + Giveaway}

My husbands alias online is the Space Turtle. So the kids are pretty much anything turtle! Recently we were introduced to Colonel Purple Turtle and we must say that he’s one cool character and we are very glad we were introduced.

Rocknoceros is an award winning band of family-friendly music behind are new favorite turtle friend. I’m excited to let you know about their brand new CD Colonel Purple Turtle which has also been paired with a beautifully illustrated 24 page companion book for children of all ages!

The musical tracks on the CD focus on life lessons as well as scientific facts! Children will get a kick out of songs that explain echolocation, the power of the sun, and the life cycle of ladybugs, to just name a few! I for one love that this CD is educational as well as plenty of fun.

Coach Cotton, Williebob, and Boogie Woogie Bennie bring listeners 19 brand new Rocknoceros songs all about themselves and their friends living in Soggy Bog!  Songs are played in a variety of styles such as a bit of jazz, barbershop quartet, string ensembles and more. Run time of the CD is 47 minutes.

The complementary hard cover book has beautiful artwork throughout and features the characters the kids come to love through the CD. My kids for one were very taken with the illustrations and enjoyed pointing out all the different types of animals seen! Every page was a treat! I for one loved how the type in the book expressed what was being told in such a way! Storybook readers can really appreciate that as their queue to possibly stress the words a bit more that they are reading to children.

Overall I and my husband agree that the Colonel Purple Turtle – Rocknoceros CD and Companion Book  is  a must  have for any household, classroom, and library setting!

You can purchase  Colonel Purple Turtle at,,, and iTunes. The colorfully illustrated companion book, Colonel Purple Turtle’s Purple Turtle Journal will be available at, both individually and as a specially priced package with the Colonel Purple Turtle CD.
