Storytime Book Suggestion: Boom Bah!

When I start up Family Storytime again in the fall, I'll be sure to work in Boom Bah! by Phil Cummings and Nina Rycroft. A little mouse taps a cup with a spoon, making a "ting!" The cat joins in with a "tong!" Soon house and farm animals are making full out music in a band. The bouncy, rhyming text is accompanied by watercolor and conte' pictures of the expressive creatures. Kids will enjoy making friendly noise along with your storytime reading.
