Read an Excerpt



My name is Lizzie and this is my brother, Alex.

While most people have a grandpa to visit, we have BoBo.

One Sunday afternoon we walked over to BoBo's house to see what he was up to.

"What are you doing BoBo?" we asked.

"I want to clean out the garage today," he answered.

BoBo was right ... the garage was a mess!

There were gardening tools, bikes, shovels, and boxes EVERYWHERE!

"BoBo, we can help you clean up. Where should we start?"

"Great! Start in the corner while I move this trash can," he answered.

Suddenly, we heard a noise ... "TAP! TAP!"

Again ... "TAP! TAP!"

Louder ... "TAP! TAP!"


We turned around and found BoBo playing the trash can like a drum and singing this song:

March! March! March to the beat!

March! March! Move those feet!

"Here we go!" I said.

Alex looked around and found an old bike horn and I picked up a rake from the messy garage.

BoBo's band now had a drum, a trumpet, and a guitar.

March! March! March to the beat!

March! March! Move those feet!

As we started to play, BoBo's neighbors came out of their houses to see what was causing so much noise.

Before we knew it, the whole neighborhood wanted to join us! Norah grabbed a garden shovel and Tyler picked up a pool inner tube.

BoBo's band now had a drum, a trumpet, a guitar, a flute, and a tuba.

March! March! March to the beat!

March! March! Move those feet!
