What more fun could you have on any given day than at the library? This book can be sung to the children (She's Coming Around the Mountain). Fun!! I enjoyed and sang out loud.

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.

To the tune of She'll be Coming Around the Mountain but with farm animals that go to story time with a super cool librarian! This one even came with a little booklet with songs and rhymes to use to plan a program.

A very cute song set to the tune of "She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain" with cute pictures of animals; good for story time.

Nice idea, cute illustrations. But the very word "Storytime" throws the meter off by a syllable. ARGH.
