Review by Booklist Reviews

Primed for a drag-queen story time or any dress-up and sing-along fun, this spin on "If You're Happy and You Know It" features glam drag queens in sparkling and patterned outfits leading the action, which is set against vibrant backgrounds. In the first section, various drag queens—from a performer with brown skin and dazzling jewels to one with light skin and a blue beard to yet another in a wheelchair, with mauve skin and a mermaid costume—encourage young readers and singers to "Blow a kiss!" "Strike a pose!" and "Say ‘Taa-daaa!'" During the "Do all three!" refrain, all the drag queens appear onstage together. A new lineup of drag queens, including a performer in an Indigenous-style dress and another with an artificial leg, take over the two successive sections and call out "Twirl around!" "Shake your bum!" and other actions. Topping off the amusement is the final "Do all three!" stage with every one of the book's drag queens. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
