Music and movement make for interactive fun for two-to-five-year-olds in this jubilant parade of an animal band that grows from a simple "Ting!" to the triumphant "Tah-dah!" of a full orchestra!
With author Phil Cummings's rollicking repetitive text, punctuated with onomatopoeic effects, and Nina Rycroft's exuberant illustrations, this popular picture book makes an irresistible interactive app. Even the youngest user will delight to join in the band by using touch technology to play the tings, bangs, clangs, bangs, bongs and a myriad of other musical sounds. The momentum never lags as busy fingers animate the high-spirited animals as they join in the celebration!
