Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you feel the beat? I am the ECE in the full day Kindergarten Program. Our students loved this book and asked me to read it three times in a row! They loved the pictures and noted the small details. They felt the beat to the words saying it along with me. It was so much fun that they asked me to read again the next day.
