Product description

A bright, feel-good rhythmical book that celebrates music and danceThis colorful, get-up-and-move story is about breaking out of boundaries. It is designed to explore the get up and go every child has burning within them. The creatures pick up instruments, gathering in number and dancing through the pages finishing off with a dancing-on-the-rooftops night scene. The rhythmical approach sets the pace to the jig and is complemented by the sounds of both the instruments and animals wraparound. Children can also learn the names and sounds of the instruments seen through the pages and join in, in their own way, with the veritable hullabaloo.

I found that this book did not match the description. There are so many good children's books around I don't think this has anything to offer.
