Little Jenny is asleep in her bedroom one night as the story, Hoo, Hoo, Hoo, Hoosiers, begins and she is awakened by a sound coming from beyond her closed bedroom door. Hoo Hoo Hoo was the sound.
She and her mother explore their farm to see what could be making the noise, but none of the animals seem to be responsible. Likewise, no one in her family can guess what the source can be. Finally, the family realizes that the Hoo Hoo Hoo is coming from the living room. It is part of the cheer Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoosiers! Jenny’s dad tells her that this is a sound she’s going to be hearing a lot as she grows up because of how much her family loves Indiana Basketball.
