Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
When Rooster’s throat gets sore and he does not feel well he asks some of his animal friends to take over his job at the farm. His important job has to be done in the morning. Can you guess what the job is? Rooster has to make sure he wakes everyone in the morning to start their day. Of course very few animals have the loud voice that a Rooster has. The animals know they cannot do Rooster’s job well. They must think of a way to solve the problem they have. Young readers may wonder why this is such a big worry for every animal. Even Elliott’s pictures show all the faces of the animals going from smiling to worried looks. This delightful, humorous and wise story is short enough for naptimes and can be expanded by discussing how each animal makes an individual sound, and shares in the running of the farm. Making the sounds for each animal pictured also makes the story come alive. Benjamin has added suggestions for ways to involve the listener more effectively in the story on the last page, which includes “Next Steps.” This is a helpful resource for parents and teachers alike. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 4 to 7.
