"The moose plays the cello. The deer, violin. And it's ONE-two-three, ONE-two-three, time to begin " Destined to be a read-aloud favorite, Woodland Dance is the newest board book from Sandra Boynton--a mystical, waltzing night-time counterpart to the upbeat, broad-daylight Barnyard Dance, the Boynton classic with over 4.7 million copies sold. With a mesmerizing rhythm and rich forest colors, Woodland Dance unfolds: by the light of the moon, a lone fox on a mountaintop gives her bugle a long, steady blow--summoning hedgehogs and frogs, raccoons and ducks, bears and moose, beavers and squirrels. Then, in a moonlit glade, in pairs and in families, they dance all night long to the music of The Woodland Dance Trio (boar flute, deer violin, moose cello.) And as dawn breaks, the animals wander off to bed as the Trio plays one last piece to welcome the sun. Such tenderness Such a magical book to share with a magical child
