We all learn the song “Yankee Doodle”, but what do all those words actually mean? Macaroni? Who came up with that?! Well, you’re not the only one with questions. In Tom Angleberger’s Crankee Doodle, Mr. Doodle grumps about everything – the feather, the hat, the pasta references. Can his pony friend convince him to go to town anyway? This fun, silly book is a great way to learn a little something about an American classic. Good luck getting the song out of your head after reading it!
