Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring '09 Kids List
“A summer camp sing-along comes joyfully to life and kids will revel in the musical fun all the way through the last verse, as Nelson's enthusiastic animal stars practically leap off the pages to add their mooing, howling, chirping voices to the chorus. Inspired!”
-- Meghan Dietsche Goel, Book People, Austin, TX


Description

Big...small...quiet...loud...feathered, flippered, or furred....

All God's critters have a place in the choir! And this jubilant and raucous bunch is waiting for you to join in because everybody has a part to sing. It doesn't matter if you sing like a bird...howl like a wolf...or croak like a frog!
