PreSchool-Grade 4–The beloved folk song bounces and hoots in this newly expanded version: "She'll be comin''round the mountain when she comes./She'll be bouncin''round the mountain when she comes./She'll be honkin', she'll be hootin', she'll be shoutin', she'll be tootin',/She'll be comin''round the mountain when she comes."

This was a very entertaining read. I don't know the real words to She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain song, but this was probably better. The animals in this mountain town are getting ready for a fiesta. They're cooking, decorating, and cleaning up. All the while, we can see a truck coming around the bendy moutain road getting closer and closer. There are clues in the pictures to help the reader guess exactly WHO is coming around the moutain. Very nice illustrations by Ashley Wolff.

I loved this book! Everyone has heard the typical "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" song, but this is a twist. Everyone in the town is getting ready for a big fiesta and we don't learn until the last page who it is for. Very cute story!

This book was a disappointment. We love the song, but the rhymes often didn't match up with the tune. The ending was kind of lame too.

Adaptation of a childrens song with a community of southwestern animals anxious for her to come around the mountain. Who is coming the library mobile what else. Great story

An interesting take on the familiar song. Lots of different and new verses, all pretty easy to sing to the tune. Maybe a little long overall, but cute.
