Author Donna Marie Merritt reads from her books - Mini Shelter
Hush That Hullabaloo! is a rollicking, rhyming, read-aloud set in Scotland, full of Scottish words that will delight wee ones as they repeat the fun phrases. Grandpa Goose is grouchy as the lads and lassies make a mess in his "hoose" and lots of noise—a hullabaloo! Children are encouraged to join Grandma with her soothing refrain, "Wheesht, wheesht, / It's only the wee ones. / Wheesht, wheesht, / Only the wee ones." Can they figure out what the hullabaloo is all about before Grandpa Goose does?
