Jane Cabrera has created a cozy rendition of a beloved song. In this picture book, a rosy-cheeked kitten and puppy come upon one delightful animal surprise after another as they paddle down a rain forest river. Sheet music, along with Cabrera's jaunty new verses, is included.

This is the beginning of the vocabulary avalanche! Your child is on the verge of learning so many words a day that you won’t be able to keep up! The next two years is the biggest explosion of vocabulary learning that a child will have in their entire life. Reading books with interesting language and that answer questions your child asks you can help build both vocabulary and knowledge about the world. Your child will be asking lots (and lots!) of questions. How you find out the answers together will show your child that their questions are valuable and that books and reading the internet can help us learn.

Why did we select this book?

Reading aloud to your child allows you to do things you would never normally do. With this book you can raise your singing voice and EEK like a mouse and BARAAAH like an elephant. Your enjoyment of these silly songs and sounds will allow your child to enjoy them too. Inviting children to read and play with their voices along with you connects them to the text on the page. Act silly and enjoy yourselves! Added to the traditional song are new lyrics that mix in the appearance of animals and their own unique sounds. That the book's river journey ends at bedtime only makes the boat ride even sweeter!

Each time you read, talk, and sing to your Dear One, you are helping their language development by introducing them to the natural sounds and patterns of speech. Combining these with actions also stimulates the brain and helps it grow.
