Written by beloved CBC personality Bill Richardson and illustrated by Cynthia Nugent, The Aunts Come Marching is a wacky, clever and creative take on a popular campfire song, great for counting games, read-alongs, sing-alongs and all-round noise-making! When a marching band of aunts (yes, aunts - not ants!) arrive for a visit, they bring with them all their musical instruments - and a cacaphony of fun. The Aunts Come Marching was shortlisted for the 2008 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children's Book Award, recognizing artistic excellence in writing and illustration in Canadian children's literature.

Can be sung to the tune of "The Ants Came Marching". If you don't want to sing a book, it won't be worth your while - but if you enjoy singing with your child, it's good fun. Well written and humorous parody.
