Swamp Song

Swamp Song - Helen Ketteman, Ponder Goembel Swamp Song didn't really seem to appeal to my niece and nephew much. It's another lyrical book, much like Farmer Joe and the Music Show, which the kids enjoyed.

The pictures in this story were cute, and the text is fun to read, but I think the kids just thought the "tip, tap, tippity-tap" bits of the book were kind of strange. I got this impression when I saw my niece making faces as I read the text. :-) It was a fast read (i.e., great bedtime story for when you just want to get the kid in bed and to sleep), but it lacked memorability.
