Comments for Barnyard Dance
My children, especially Harriet, like Sandra Boynton's books. Our most recent addition is Barnyard Dance! which follows a group of animals as they square dance.
I like the book for its use of rhythm. The text is written as if it is a series of square dance calls. It brings back memories of a number of square dances I went to as a child (either through school or through my grandmother's volunteering).
Harriet likes the silly drawings of the various animals dancing. She likes to stop on each page to point out her favorite creatures. I think she is partial to the cows and pigs.
Of our collection of Boynton books, Barnyard Dance! is my favorite.
