A full-scale parade marches out of the pages, complete with brass music, colorful costumes, and the approaching drum of feet on the pavement

The "festive colors" and "flashing brass" of a marching band appear before the reader in this foot-stomping parade of color. "Big as ants" and "loud as crickets," the tiny marchers climb off a yellow bus. The reader hears the band's "distant drums/chirping horns/THUMP, THUMP/THUMP, THUMP."Colors and sounds grow larger and louder as the band grows closer ("big as birds/loud as lions/THUMP, THUMP/THUMP, THUMP"), then gradually fade away. Baer's crescendo and de-crescendo of words is amiably matched by the typesize and by Ehlert's stylized marchers. The design is crisp and inventive; abstract but definable bandmembers made of rectangles and circles in primary colors step smartly across vivid pages. Readers will want to cheer for this rat-a-tat-tat parade. Ages 2-6.
