A summer parade, a drummer parade, a magical bucket-and-bowl serenade
What begins with one boy's beat on a kettle soon spreads to pots and pans and cartons and cans all across the neighborhood. When everyone joins in, together they create the catchy, driving tempo of a bright, hot DRUM CITY
Get ready to make some noise with this upbeat, lyrical, and diverse picture book

Praise For Drum City

Review, Booklist, June, 2010:
“A great choice for an active storytime."

Review, Kids lit. Menesha Library.org, June 24, 2010:
"Purely infectious!"

Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2010:
"This one begs to be read aloud in a music or city-sounds storytime. But be forewarned—anything even remotely drum-like will not be safe for the rest of the day."
