When I saw this book on the new bookcart @ work, I was thrilled, after I read it my enthusiasm dwindled. It is an adorable idea and the tune of "coming around the mountain" works well but as the book progresses the refrain loses speed. Too many activites are listed and it becomes highly confusing. "We might get a treat when we come" shoot me now snacks at STORYTIME and I though crafts was a bit much! LOL. I so wanted to make this a favorite storytime book but it is best read as a oneon1 story.

This is a cute picture book and I liked the idea behind using a familiar tune (She'll Be Comin' Around the Mountian), to get children to sing along with the story. However, the lines in the book are a little off for keeping the song going. There are too many syllables in some places which made it a little akward for me to stay on track and I wouldn't expect a Kindergarten class to. It also drags on a bit and ends up being a bit long for kids to stay interested the whole time.
