This is a great book to read with younger children. It encourages them to get and dance whilst enjoying the funky drawings and whacky lyrics.

There are even drawings of musical instruments to learn about and recognise. It was such fun to read and over time I am sure that my son would memorise them all!

The illustrations are bright and bold and appeal to both children and adults.

This book introduces some interesting instruments which many children will have not heard of. Most of the book is based on feeling rhythm and moving around.

Eh, I don't know if I'd read this one aloud -- but I'll definitely save it to set out for the movement storytime I have planned for August.
