Rhythmic words tell of a parade that is coming to town. The band starts far
away, comes closer, and then moves far away. The writer and illustrator
demonstrate this through picture size and vocabulary. Some examples of the
vocabulary used are: Big as ants, Loud as crickets, and loud as thunder. This is a
great book for comparisons and telling a story through the illustrations.
