Farmer Chuck and his barnyard friends form a band, and boy can these critters play! Join the ruckus with Peggy Perry Anderson’s toe-tapping, knee-slapping rhymes and bright illustrations headlined by a cast of animal musicians playing a wide variety of instruments.
Chuck and his barnyard friends are having a jam session and beginning readers are invited for a toe-tapping, knee-slapping good time. But what is the matter with Fat Cat Pat? Does she want her own musical instrument too, or is something else making that cat blue? Readers will have fun finding out in this perfectly pitched story! Full of rhyme, repetition, and musical instruments galore.
"[T]his pleasing picture book would make a good intro to musical activities for young children." —Booklist, ALA
"Bright acrylics, a cleverly rollicking text and the introduction of many farm animals and instruments nudge this above average."—Kirkus Reviews
"… comical art and rhythmic text will keep the youngest chuckling, while the entertaining rhymes are great for new readers." —Horn Book
"The rhyming prose flows naturally, like a song, producing a pleasing balance between words and their onomatopoeia counterpart. Beginning readers will have fun with the humorous setting and laugh at the surprising end. The lively primary colors and crayon-based illustrations add delightful details not present in the text. An excellent addition for most libraries." –SLJ
