KIRKUS REVIEW

Sing along, dance along and follow the adventures of rootin’ tootin’ frontier Babe. After a short introduction, the text swings into multiple verses of the title tune. Who knew there were so many? “She’ll dance across the rooftops” and “she’ll paint the whole town purple” are just two. Each verse also has its own fun exclamation for listeners to shout out or sing, from “Toot-Toot!” to “Tee-Hee!” to “Squish-Splat!” Backmatter even includes pictured instructions on how to perform each exclamation. (For “Squish-Splat,” you imagine juggling jelly with both hands.) Another surprise is a pair of giant saloon-door pages that open out to reveal Babe and all of her partying friends waiting to come in. Dancing type adds energy to Emmett’s Wild West hokey pokey, as do Allwright’s lively illustrations full of dancing, jiggling chickens, prairie dogs, owls and, of course, kids. Yee-Ha! (Picture book. 4-7)
