Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Three of the four farm animals featured in this book look out at the readers from the front cover. There is also a yellow duck that leads kids through the pages by asking questions and providing answers. In case you wonder where the fourth animal is, it is featured on the back cover. The big attraction here for kids is pushing the buttons and hearing the animal sounds as well as a little banjo music. The duck urges kids to push the buttons and the text is reminiscent of Old MacDonald Had a Farm as it presents the featured animals. Cows moo, horses neigh, sheep baa and pigs oink. That is it, but it will be fun for little ones. Parents may be very happy when the battery runs out, but it is replaceable. So be prepared to hear plenty of oinks, baas, neighs and moos with this board book. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
Duck encourages children to connect sounds to their corresponding animals down on this farm. A cow, sheep, pig and horse appear in crisp photographs in busy but clear compositions. The text uses a modified "Old MacDonald" pattern to encourage readers' involvement. "Hear a neigh? / There's a neigh! / Everywhere a neigh, neigh. / It must be a HORSE!" Barnyard cheerleader Duck starts the game, appearing on every page and ending with condescension: "Look at how many you know!" Colored type supports the playful feel. A red plastic attachment features the mammals' photographs with easily identifiable sound buttons that make the animals' noises when pushed. The final sound button (a musical-note) adds an upbeat melody. Consistent use of color connects the interactive elements to the characters' background design. There are a lot of opportunities to add to the noise in this barn. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)
