Children's Book Review: Yankee Doodle (Sing-Along Stories)

We love this "singable" story that finds Yankee Doodle on a trip to town. Along the way, fun characters (including a poodle and a toad) hop on for an animated ride that ends with the group opening a Noodles restaurant.   


Both children and their parents will be familiar with the featured song, which makes the book easy to read (or sing!). The lyrics to the popular song take a fun twist which will get kids giggling and wanting more. The authors have wisely added some extension activities, perhaps anticipating just that. The illustrations are as playful as the hilarious text. Yankee Doodle brought smiles to our kids testers' faces.
