Each year my family reads all the Goodreads-award-nominated picture books, and we have been doing this for years. Everyone rates each book and adds a comment and it may (or may not) affect my overall rating. This is book #3 of 2017.
Tara: 2 stars. I liked the variation on “Mama called the doctor,” but that was it.
Harry (12): 2 stars. I like how he creates a band.
Hank (11): 2.5 stars. I didn’t like how it repeated things over and over, but I liked the art, and I got the rhythm.
Lyra (10): 2 stars.
it was amazing
This book, by the brilliant team behind several children’s classics, combines two amazing playground rhymes into a book-chant that I am COMPLETELY going to put in my storytimes for the next year. We’ll all get up and move and get ready to play together. It’s brilliant.
Highly recommend looking up a video of a child doing this rhyme if you didn’t grow up with it, because “Let’s get the rhythm of the head, DING DONG,” should sound right to those who know it from playground clapping games.
