It's time to go to bed but this little boy has invented a special strategy for keeping his parents away! Boom Boom! How do you say, "Not yet?" Each toy in his room has its own voice and I can instantly see reading this to a story time group and assigning different sounds to small groups of children and parents. With a neee neee here and a plonk, cling, ding there! The pictures are wonderfully large and add to the sense of the clamor. It's time for bed.....neeeee, neeeee, plonk, plonk, cling, cling....No parent could possibly be heard over the din. Lots of fun!
Boom Boom Go Away!
