The Barnyard Band is performing today.
All the musicians are coming to play!
Each animal musician knows what to do, but Cow can only moo!
This charming book is a delightful read-aloud featuring funny musical sounds and a refrain children will love repeating. Tim McCanna’s playful text will have children laughing, and Allison Black’s energetic illustrations will make children want to get up and move. Barnyard Boogie! is full of rhyming—and nonsense—sounds that will enrich and delight.


"McCanna's simple and alliterative onomatopoeic text flows across the page in a variety of bright colors, and its brevity and unfaltering scansion suit it well to a toddler audience...  A good addition to storytimes on barnyard animals, music, or finding one's talent."
