Kirkus Reviews
A cumulative rhyming tale that will have listeners chiming in. Baby has lost his shoe, and it's up to his big brother to find it. He begins a careful search of the farmyard, trying every possible spot: "Is it in the cow field? Whoops! No! Moo!" He continues his search, looking in the duck pond, the sheep pen, the stable and even the pig's trough. Instead of the missing shoe, he manages to find mishaps around every corner, landing in the pond, falling into a mud puddle and sprawling in the hay. The search party grows as the animals from each location join in the hunt. Finally, giving up, the brother finds that the shoe has been hidden inside the baby's carriage all along. Animal sounds and simple rhymes insist on an interactive tale. Repetitive verses and Childs's bright, cheerfully colorful illustrations keep the silly story moving. Great fun for story time. (Picture book. 2-4)
