Review

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 in reality knows how to use an active verb. — Parents, June 1994

The popular illustrator and greeting-card artist brings oddball humor and quite a lot 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 another way 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 referred to as, with great panache, by a fiddle-playing cow: “Bow to the horse. / Bow to the cow. / Twirl with the pig if you know the way.” 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)
