Kids will make a joyful noise with these ever-popular classic songs! Lively, warm, and friendly, this illustrated collection--plus a CD with Peter Yarrow, his daughter Bethany, and cellist Rufus Cappadocia--will bring families together to read and to sing. Peter makes every tune sound fresh and irresistible, and Terry Widener's appealing pictures capture the spirit of each song, from the wild waves and rocking boat of "Sloop John B" to happy dancers ready to "Skip to My Lou."
