Reviews all around the world
“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 re-readings: ‘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
“The popular illustrator and greeting-card artist brings oddball humor and plenty of sassy energy to Boynton on Board, a quartet of concept board books. Each volume features a die-cut front cover framing a picture of its ebullient cartoon stars. A zany sensibility gives an extra bounce to the otherwise conventional counting book One, Two, Three! A similar silliness suffuses Dinosaurs, which explores opposites. In Barnyard, farm animals dance a boisterous, breathless, knee-slapping reel called, with great panache, by a fiddle-playing cow: ‘Bow to the horse. / Bow to the cow. / Twirl with the pig if you know how.’ The rowdy crew in Monsters bursts in upon a mild-mannered hippo and makes ‘the mess that monsters make,’ but returns to make amends. Fresh and buoyant, these books are good, clean fun.” Ages 1-4. —Publishers Weekly
