A wonderful, joyous celebration of music and play

BOM! went the bear on the big bass drum


Strum strum strum

Bear loves to play his big bass drum—on his own. He likes to make as much noise as he can, marching around like he's king of all the land. It looks like so much fun that soon he's joined by all manner of enthusiastic musicians. But with so many animals determined to deliver a command performance, is there room for Bear to march to the beat of his own drum?

Praise For BOM! Went the Bear

"...the abundant sound effects make for jubilant reading. But even more valuable and rare is the that happiness does not require being part of an ensemble. Playing solo is just fine." - Publishers Weekly
