Image: Chicken Dance | Hardcover: 40 pages | by Tammi Sauer (Author), Dan Santat (Illustrator). Publisher: Sterling (August 1, 2009)National Chicken Dance Day/Dance Like a Chicken Day
-- Swiss accordion player Werner Thomas wrote Der Ententanz or the Duck Dance, in the 1950s. When he played the song at a restaurant in Switzerland in 1963, people would get up and dance to the melody. Their movements reminded him of ducks and chickens. A music publisher happened to stop by the restaurant and the song spread through Europe. While it took quite a while to catch on in America, the upbeat melody eventually hit the party and wedding scene and the rest, as they say, is history.

Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat have whipped up a giddy, goofy romp where cows fly over the moon, ducks surf in a water trough, and one very familiar-looking rooster gets all shook up!
