5.0 out of 5 stars Tum tum te tum 27 Oct 2011
Grab some drums as well as this book - you can enhance the story by drumming along as you go - and why not feel really good about yourself by making the drums out of rubbish - cardboard tubes, biscuit tins, whatever - enjoy yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 8 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great book, a fun book that children will enjoy. They enjoy joining in with the sounds of the instruments and it has inspired some of them to make their own music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hedgehogs Inspire Daily Drumming 31 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Inspired by Harry's enthusiastic drumming and his band's musical merryment, my seventeen-month-old son and I now daily pound out joyous tunes on a collection of old coffee cans and wooden spoons. The repetitive tum-tum-te-tum and diddle-diddle-dum of the hedgehogs' drums moves us to dance, hum, and drum in different ways at every reading. My son loves to match the soothingly rendered animals to their contributed sounds as I ask "Who says 'Pweee', 'chkka chkka', or 'pop pop'?" And what toddler can resist accompanying the resounding BOOM! that ends this tale with his own whack on the can!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book! 8 Dec 2011
By Santa's Elf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We bought this book many years ago to read to our kids when they were little and it was their first choice to read at night for a long time. There is so much to share with the kids and get them involved in the reading process. The pacing, the illustrations, the wording - it's all wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars My son's favorite book 23 Feb 2006
By Richman Amitai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have a 2.5 year old boy who cannot get enough of this book. We have read it to him so many times that he knows every word by heart and can read the book himself. Highlights:

- The text is beautifully written

- The story is simple and easy to follow

- Children like to participate by making the various sounds
