She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain

( 1 )

Overview

Forget everything you know about who's comin' 'round that mountain! This pink-pajama-wearing, jelly-jar-juggling, rooftop-dancing cowgirl is sure to charm the spurs off any rancher, and tickle the funny bone of the most ornery varmint.

This classic song has brand-new verses and enough "tee-hees", "toot-toots", and "squish-splats" to keep kids singin', shoutin', and readin' again and again.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
"She" (identified on the back cover, but not in the text, as Bonnie Bandit) is a petite girl dressed in pink pajamas and wearing an oversized cowboy hat. The ballad of her adventures is related by a singing cucumber, dressed in cowboy boots and hat, strumming a guitar. Young children dance and cheer as they listen to the tale, while various animals (an owl, a beaver, mice, etc.) play musical instruments for accompaniment. The six white horses are given names and sequences not found in the traditional song are added, such as juggling with jelly, dancing across rooftops, and painting the town purple. Some of the more familiar actions are not included. Readers are encouraged to join in with actions and sound effects, such as pulling an arm up and down and saying, "Toot-toot," learning back as though drinking from a dustbin and murmuring, "Slurp-slurp," and swinging an imaginary lasso overhead while hollering, "Yee-ha." A large fold-out page near the back features all of the sayings. The colorful full-page illustrations depict plenty of action in a cartoonlike format. Although the musical score and the words for the first verse appear on the end pages, many of the additional verses do not fit the rhythm and would be difficult to sing or read in a smooth flowing way.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3
In this version of the traditional American folk song, the heroine is a feisty little girl in pink pajamas, "flowery and frilly,/and they make her look quite silly." Her six white horses have names like Moonbeam and Stardust. When she comes, she will be doing remarkable things like "juggling with jelly" ("Squish-Splat!"), dancing across the rooftops ("Yee-Ha!"), and painting the whole town plum so "the place won't look so glum." A turquoise sky shows off white cowboy-hat clouds, and two foldout pages open wide like green saloon doors to welcome her. The joyful children and animals playing instruments who go out to meet her are small against the landscape, which is done in a palette of Southwestern colors. These illustrations are as lively as the new verses and call for another round of singing, using the hand motions given at the end of the book. Other versions with the same title are by Philemon Sturges (Little, Brown, 2004) and Ann Owen (Picture Window, 2003). This lively addition will surely elicit smiles.

Kirkus Reviews
Sing along, dance along and follow the adventures of rootin' tootin' frontier Babe. After a short introduction, the text swings into multiple verses of the title tune. Who knew there were so many? "She'll dance across the rooftops" and "she'll paint the whole town purple" are just two. Each verse also has its own fun exclamation for listeners to shout out or sing, from "Toot-Toot!" to "Tee-Hee!" to "Squish-Splat!" Backmatter even includes pictured instructions on how to perform each exclamation. (For "Squish-Splat," you imagine juggling jelly with both hands.) Another surprise is a pair of giant saloon-door pages that open out to reveal Babe and all of her partying friends waiting to come in. Dancing type adds energy to Emmett's Wild West hokey pokey, as do Allwright's lively illustrations full of dancing, jiggling chickens, prairie dogs, owls and, of course, kids. Yee-Ha! (Picture book. 4-7)

    Love this book, fun to read!

    We have a copy of this book that came with a cd, but honestly, I'd rather read it (actually, sing it) myself. It's fun to give different voices to each section. Just be sure you have plenty of energy when you pick it up because your children will ask you to read (sing) it again and again!
