Bim Bam Boom

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Kindergarten
  • Reading Level: Grade 1

A pot and two wooden spoons—BIM BAM—little owl makes music! Canary, sparrow, chick, and raven join her. What a joy to create sound and rhythm with pots and pans! Two saucepan lids—TISH TISH—a bowl and a ladle—BOOM BOOM.

But then: “What ARE you doing?” asks Big Owl. This kind of music isn’t for everybody. . .

This joyful board book captures the pure pleasure of making “music” with pots and pans, and celebrates the inadvertent naughtiness of toddler behavior.

Publishers Weekly

“It’s a rowdy ode to low-tech music making and play, with an ending that suggests more household chaos is in store.”—Publishers Weekly
