Sandra Boynton has a knack for creating baby books with bounce. Her Barnyard Dance! Is a true romp of a board book, with cartoon farm animals that are wacky enough to make you laugh out loud, and rhymes clever enough to sustain those nearly infinite re-readings: "Stand with the donkey /Slide with the sheep / Scramble with the little chicks - cheep cheep cheep!" Now, here's a woman who really knows how to use an active verb. (Parents) Funny, flocking, festivities are depicted in this bright and sturdy board book. Everybody sings along as the animals do-si-do in the barnyard. Winner of the 1994 Gold Medal from the National Parenting Publications Award.
