I didn’t really like the first pages because it seemed a bit negative and was hard to explain to a 2 year old, but it gets better.
Cute story. Very simple and happy.

Too late, Pokko’s parents realize maybe giving her a drum wasn’t the best idea. They can’t even hear each other complaining about her drum over the sound of her drum! (Think Bert and Ernie with the banana-in-the-ear problem). When they finally get her out of the house, she starts some noise, but then her friends join in and pretty soon it’s music. I could not stop smiling the entire time I read this book. It is absolutely hilarious, and Pokko is so endearing. So clever, and if you think you know what’s coming next, guess again. My favorite new picture book in a long time.

I was lucky enough to have a local school librarian who shared this with me before I could get our "on order" copy. It's gorgeous! And such a funny, sweet story to go with the beautiful artwork. it's a story about marching to your own drumbeat... literally but it isn't preachy at all. This one feels like a potential award winner.
