The Barnyard Band is performing today. All the musicians are coming to play! Each animal musician knows what to do, but Cow can only moo! This charming book is a wonderful read-aloud featuring musical sounds and a refrain children will love repeating. Tim McCanna's playful text will have children laughing at the funny musical sounds, and Allison Black's energetic illustrations will make children want to get up and move. Barnyard Boogie! is full of rhyming and nonsense sounds that will enrich and delight.
