Children's LiteratureThis dandy early reader book with flaps to lift, wheels to turn, and tabs to pull brings a little excitement to an old familiar tale. Told in the familiar rhythm and rhyme of similar early childhood books, the words will soon be on the lips of young readers. The publisher calls this series of books "Bright and Early Playtime Books," and they are. On the back cover it says, "Classic Stories with Interactive Oomph," which this one certainly is. Sturdy enough to stand up to little hands, and entertaining enough for parents to be willing to read over and over, this book will be popular with any young child who would like a simple story of animals running away, only to discover what made them all start to run was the noise made by a sheep with his foot caught in a bucket. At the end, "They all went away, They all waved good-bye, So I sat by the lake And looked at the sky." 2005, Random House, Ages 2 to 5.
