Editorial Reviews

Magazine Editors Parents
Sandra Boynton has a knack for creating baby books with bounce. Her Barnyard Dance! Is a true romp of a board book, with cartoon farm animals that are wacky enough to make you laugh out loud, and rhymes clever enough to sustain those nearly infinite rereadings: "Stand with the donkey / Slide with the sheep / Scramble with the little chicks - cheep cheep cheep!" Now, here's a woman who really knows how to use an active verb. --Parents, June 1994
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Funny, flocking, festivities are depicted in this bright and sturdy board book. Everybody sings along as the animals do-si-do in the barnyard. Winner of the 1994 Gold Medal from the National Parenting Publications Award.

This book is more like a song. It's fun For the kids. Fun for story time. We have all Sandra Boynton's books. The illustrations are great. It says something about a book when a child looks up after you finish reading and says "Please read it one more time". Even when it is the 3rd or 4th time.

This book is so much fun. My 14 month old daughter loves books like this where she can imitate. Plus I have to admit, it's great fun for me as well. She's just so darn cute dancing around with her thirteen year old brother (he will do ANYTHING for baby sis) acting like the barnyard animals. I also recommend The Tickle Monster. Both books will have your kids giggling from beginning to end.

My 3-yr old granddaughter loves this book. She laughs and giggles with delight at the thought of barnyard animals dancing and cavorting around.

My mother-in-law had this book at her house and my five-month old son and I enjoyed it so much during our visit that we purchased a copy for our home. My nephew also has this book and it is one of his favorites too. I highly recommend this book because we absolutely love it!

This is a great book in rhyme with wonderful Boynton characters. My two year old granddaughter actually acts to the dance and can repeat a good portion of it by heart. We have so much fun with this book!

Very disappointed that I puchased this and could not read it on my Nook. Why offer it as a Nook Book then?

I have this board book and my 4 and 3 year olds LOVE it. Warning, not a good bedtime story because it makes you want to move and giggle.

The Barnyard Dance invites the reader to participate! I am buying it for my 18 month grand-niece. It is a fun story for everyone in the family!

Both of my kids love this one! I find my self singing it rather then reading it to them, which only makes them enjoy it even more! We usually end up reading it two or more times!

My son loves the rhythm and rhyme of this book! Its a favorite now and got his first smile at 6 weeks! I dont get tired of it either

The illustrations are so cute, and you can almost see the farm animals come to life and dance to the beat of the caller's voice :) Happy square dance beat and lively drawings. The only thing that would've made this better is if they'd added a little music (even just a violin) in the background. Still 5 well-deserved stars!

This is one of the every night and or daytime books of our 21 month old grand daughter, she asks for it by calling for the dance. The rhymes and rhythm make it so much fun to read over and over. The characters are great and since it involves animals, kids just love it. We already own 2 copies.
