New York Times bestselling illustrator Jane Dyer teams up with award-winning author Carole Gerber to lead a band of marching babies all through town.
Enjoy a new HarperCollins Children’s Book Release – Perfect for anyone who loves rhyming book! It was just an ordinary day at play group until Benny arrived. With flute in hand and drums in tow, Benny’s love of music inspires the babies to get up and put on a show. Toot! Toot! Whee! Benny and his band of babies are a sight to see!
My preschooler, Brie, is at an age (zooming closer to age 4!) where being a ‘baby’ does not appeal to her. Oh sure, she thinks babies are cute and loves to see or touch them (with a soft touch, as we say), but there is NO WAY SHE IS A BABY! She wants to be like her older sister and she likes to remind us of that every day. She got a kick out of ‘A Band of Babies’, those silly little people who do hilarious things because they are still very small – unlike a preschooler – AHEM! With rhythmic text from veteran author Carole Gerber and lively illustrations from bestselling artist Jane Dyer, this musical journey will have readers of all ages snapping their fingers and tapping their toes!
Babies shimmy. Babies sway. Beat on drums. Hooray! Hooray!
