Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"A hefty helping of rowdy fun," wrote PW of this onomatopoeic catalogue of farm animals and their homes, illustrated with textured pulp paintings. Ages 2-6. (Oct.)
From The Critics
Bright, colorful illustrations coupled with the sounds of the barnyard atmosphere will make this a stimulating experience for the board book crowd. The big bold text will encourage toddlers to leaf through page after page of animal sounds and beautiful pictures to find out "Where's Goose?" A feast for the eyes! 2001, Henry Holt and Company, $6.95. Ages 3 mo. to 3. Reviewer: M. Thomas SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
Children's Literature
Toddlers are introduced to farm animals and their sounds in a rollicking, rhyming search for Goose who can be discovered on each page chasing a butterfly. The collage illustrations are perfect in their depiction of each animal's character, from the jaunty rooster to the inquisitive kittens to the busy mice in the grain bin. The simple phrases followed by the animal sounds are just enough on each page to engage very young children. This highly acclaimed picture book is ideal here in board book format. Children just learning to talk will enjoy repeating the animal sounds. As they are developing their sense of independence at this age, they will appreciate the easy-to-turn thick pages. 2001, Henry Holt, $6.95. Ages 1 to 4. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Roosters, cows, crows, hens, kittens, etc., noisly go about their barnyard business except for Goose, who silently flits through each scene chasing an elusive butterfly. She finally makes herself heard on the last double-page spread. Strong rhythm and rhyme, plus fun onomatopoeic animal sounds, demand reading aloud. But even more delightful than the engaging text are Fleming's spectacular illustrations, created by pouring cotton pulp through hand-cut stencils. They create realistically textured, bold, bright settings for the whimsical critters to romp through. Intimate perspectives (tucked in the hay loft at kitten's-eye level, wallowing with mud-mucking pigs), reminiscent of In the Tall, Tall Grass (Holt, 1991), make Barnyard Banter one more plus to Fleming's already impressive collection.-Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
Kathryn Broderick
Like Fleming's other picture books, this is a lot of noisy fun. Here, her handmade paper pictures are brighter and grittier, with coffee grounds and real oats worked into the pulp. As for the story, a pure white goose tours a farm visiting her friends, and each responds appropriately. Large, thick black lettering scattered around the double-page spreads shouts out, "Hee haw, haw . . . caw, caw, caw." Readers will watch for Goose in each picture; expect a lot of honking by story's end. As usual, Fleming has created another original, excitingly designed book for the youngest children.

    My son (Age 3...almost 4) read this book every night along with a couple others that are also routine. He absolutely loves it. He points out the goose on every page and makes all of the noises with me. The pictures are great and we have fun with this book every night.
