From Booklist

TITLR YAnkee Doodle. . 1996. Ages 4^-8. First published under the title Steven Kellogg's Yankee Doodle (1976) and starred in Booklist, this picture book looks better than ever in its larger format. The glossy pages allow finer reproduction of the lively, detailed ink drawings that are washed with watercolor. The larger format affords room for a bigger typeface and more repetitions of the refrain as well as more white space framing the bordered illustrations. Two new pages provide detailed notes on the song and its history. And the familiar line that another age of political correctness had edited to "Mind the music and the step, and with the folks be handy" is here restored to the original, "Mind the music and the step and with the girls be handy." Hurrah!

A delightful depiction of the familiar song March 3 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Our six-year-old son loved Yankee Doodle so much that he brought it home from the school library two weeks in a row. He was fascinated by the pictures, and he enjoyed telling us his own interpretation of the story. After reading (and singing) the book together for several nights in a row, his reading improved noticeably. Not surprisingly, he begged us to get him his own copy.

Add this to your Revolutionary War home school unit April 5 2011
By M. Heiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This one and "Rip Van Winkel" with illustrations by John Howe both belong with the revolutionary war unit. Their illustrations of the clothing and settings of the 1770's in America are superb.

This book gives you illustrations for the song "Yankee Doodle" that track one little boy. Good illustrations of period clothing and lots of surprises on every page. Includes the music for "Yankee Doodle" and a history of the song at the back. Also includes a glossary of the words in the song, and gives some context.

Well done book.
