Drummer Hoff Author:Barbara Emberley Ed Emberley won the 1968 Caldecott Medal for his bold illustrations for Barbara Emberley's jaunty adaptation of the cumulative folk song about seven soldiers who build a magnificent cannon and Drummer Hoff, who fires it off.
The illustrations are very detailed and bright colors. My children enjoy looking at them and talking about them. The story itself is pretty basic and so makes this book for younger children. But with the wonderful illustrations older children would enjoy it as well. I would say 2 to 10 years.
