I’m quite the snob when it comes to reading to children. I like to get into the story and add voices and sing (when neccessary) and I can’t stand listening to people read in a monotone voice. I know, ailment I know, price some people just aren’t good readers and reading to a child is never a waste. However, cheap I’m grateful that the Mister can get into a book just as much as I can so listening to him read Barnyard Beat repeatedly (by request of course) on Sunday was a lot of fun.
We may have missed this book too if the Mister hadn’t made a rare Saturday trip to the library with us. The illustrations are colourful and fun but really it is the toe-tapping story that had us dancing for the rest of the day.
Chicks can’t sleep/Chicks can’t sleep/Chicks can’t sleep ’cause they got that beat!
And so do we.
