According to The New York Times website, Peters' book, which benefits the Broadway Barks charity, ranks in the fifth position on the current Children's Books best seller's list — in the Picture Books category — which follows. 1. "Read All About It!," by Laura Bush and Jenna Bush
2. "Gallop!," written and illustrated by Rufus Butler Seder
3. "Dirt On My Shirt," by Jeff Foxworthy
4. "Alphabet," by Matthew Van Fleet
5. "Broadway Barks," by Bernadette Peters
Peters' "Broadway Barks," which features illustrations by Liz Murphy, was released in late April on the Blue Apple Books label and boasts a CD featuring a lively reading of the story by Peters and a lovely song ("Kramer's Song") penned by the Tony-winning Annie Get Your Gun and Song & Dance star. The charming children's book, the tale of a down-on-his-luck, yet scrappy dog Kramer , benefits Broadway Barks, the charitable organization co-founded by Peters and good friend Mary Tyler Moore over a decade ago.
