This book was reviewed by Carol Otis Hurst in Teaching K-8 Magazine.
A farm boy awakens in the middle of the night and is lured to the barn, where the animals are holding an old-fashioned hoedown. Rand's fluid artwork adds the right touch in this book that begs to be read aloud with a barn dance caller's rhythm.
