Children's LiteratureThe old song with a western slant creates a mystery as to who "she" is, as the animals prepare for the festivities and prepare a room for her arrival. Tables are set with flowers, food, and drink. Every raccoon, armadillo, lizard, bear, and skunk has a job. The pigs are fishing in the mountain streams to catch fish for the feast to welcome her. There will be all types of dancing when "she" comes. The coyotes practice the cha-cha for the celebration. Children can track her vehicle's approach from one picture to another as the critters scurry around to be finished in time. The party begins when "she" pulls into "ReeDerVille" in her Six White Horses bookmobile camper. Captivating full-page illustrations will have children searching for all of the interesting details as the words are read (or sung) to them. Grandparents will especially enjoy sharing this book with their grandchildren. It is a "read it again" type book. This would be an excellent choice for the story hour at the local library. 2004, Little Brown, Ages 3 to 6.
