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.
