" This book is a noisemaker's dream come true, and those looking for visual thrills won't be disappointed either, thanks to Cynthia Nugent's multitudes of costumed aunts." - Globe and Mail
Written by beloved CBC personality Bill Richardson and illustrated by Cynthia Nugent, The Aunts Come Marching is a wacky, clever and creative take on a popular campfire song, great for counting games, read-alongs, sing-alongs and all-round noisemaking! When a marching band of aunts (yes, aunts-not ants!) arrive for a visit, they bring with them all their musical instruments-and a cacophony of fun.
The Aunts Come Marching was also shortlisted for the 2008 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Award, recognizing artistic excellence in writing and illustration in Canadian children's literature.
