Children's Poet Laureate

Yankee Doodle

Megan Tingley Books, Little, Brown & Co., 2004.

Illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott.

The latest title in the Sing-Along Stories series, this merry picture book begins with the familiar first verse and chorus of "Yankee Doodle." But that's just the beginning of Yankee's adventures. Before he's done, he's collected a whole menagerie of jolly new friends and added fresh meaning to his name of Macaroni! Complete with musical notation and an activity page.

Look inside the book!

"The verses bounce along at a merry clip, while the jaunty illustrations add their own madness…"
