Fun wordplay and a great, uplifting, confidence-building theme are paired with colorful, engaging illustrations in a lovely, amusing picture book from Kwame Alexander. Acoustic Rooster's Barnyard Boogie Starring Indigo Blume is both silly and serious, with funny animal names and a serious message about overcoming your fears and accepting help from others when it's offered.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
