Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"With an imagination tickler for a title, this tale sends a multi-ethnic group of children on a cheery survey of the farmyard," said PW. "The artist renders vibrantly colored scenes from a wealth of vantage points." Ages 2-5. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Children will have to join in with their own voices when reading this noisy investigation into the world of farmyard animal sounds! Five children visit a farm with the burning question "Who says boo?" Of each animal¾including cows, roosters, owls, cats, pigs, dogs, and more¾they ask "Does this animal say boo?" until finally they find out who does. Hindley and Granström have combined their word and picture talents to present a fun book that joins reading with playing. (Warning: Do not read in a place that requires hushed tones!) 2002, Candlewick,
— Heidi Hauser Green
School Library Journal
PreS-This simple and appealing picture book will have preschoolers calling out answers right and left. Hindley asks "Does a cow say boo?" and, of course, the response is "Oh no!" "What does a cow say? A cow says- moo!" The entertaining story rollicks on through a variety of animals and sounds until children finally get to the right answer: "You say- boo!" Although the plot is minimal, the brightly colored illustrations will keep youngsters' attention, and the predictable, repetitive text is perfect for encouraging interactive reading experiences. The large cartoons portray a variety of friendly looking animals and four engaging children who are visiting a farm. The full-bleed pages of barnyard scenes are inviting, and the lively story will work equally well one-on-one or in a group setting. Sure to be a hit in storytimes, this book would be a good addition to any library serving the toddler and preschool set.-Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Delightful pencil, watercolor, and crayon illustrations of multiethnic children accompanied by a lyrical narrative happily guide young readers through the many sights and sounds of the farm. Hindley and Granstrom (Eyes, Nose, Fingers, and Toes, 1999, etc.) return with an effort that is sure to become a crowd pleaser at story hours. "Does a cow say BOO? Oh, no! What does a cow say? A cow says . . . moo! That's what a cow says-and you can too." Similar teasing rhymes for pigs, dogs, cats, and owls naturally lead to discussion and imitation of animal noises, ranging from traditional oinks and woofs to more subtle tu-whits and tu-whoos. A seasoned children's author, Hindley respects the limited attention span of her audience and mixes up the format when relating other farm sounds. "And way up high on the hen house roof the rooster throws back his head and crows . . . how does he go? Cock-a-doodle-doo, doodle-doo, doodle-doo! Listen to that!" Other animals are covered even more succinctly with "a duck says quack, a bird says tweet . . ." as well as an acknowledgment that "some creatures say nothing at all." Especially pleasing are renderings of children in constant motion exploring the farm, pointing excitedly, imitating the horned cow, holding a nose in the pig pen, stroking a cat's fur, crawling on the ground to look at worms and snails, and, finally, throwing arms up in the air to shout "BOO!" A fresh approach to a popular topic. (Picture book. 2-5)
