About the Book

Named one of Amazon's Best Children’s Books of 2017: Baby to Age 2

New York Times bestselling illustrator Jane Dyer teams up with award-winning author Carole Gerber to lead a band of marching babies all through town.

It was just an ordinary day at play group until Benny arrived. With flute in hand and drums in tow, Benny’s love of music inspires the babies to get up and put on a show. Toot! Toot! Whee! Benny and his band of babies are a sight to see!

With rhythmic text from veteran author Carole Gerber and lively illustrations from bestselling artist Jane Dyer, this musical journey will have readers of all ages snapping their fingers and tapping their toes!

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Gerber employs lilting syntax with bouncy rhymes [and] Dyer’s very softly hued illustrations fill double-page spreads that follow the toddlers, belonging to a myriad of races, on their adventures. Exuberant and full of fun.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Dyer’s soft colored pencil illustrations delight. An exuberant celebration of toddlers’ willful, can’t-be-stopped independence. Gerber’s carefully crafted rhymes and Dyer’s cherubic portraits balance tenderness and mischief on each page.” —Publishers Weekly

“This adorable title makes for an engaging read. A charming picture book that is psrightly in tone and text. A rollicking read-aloud.” —School Library Journal
