Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-When Farmer Bob, exhausted from days of harvesting, sleeps through the heavy rain and the rising floodwaters, it takes the cooperation of many animals to save him. A cloud of gnats, a rafter of turkeys, herds and flocks, gaggles and packs, swarms and nests are led by a drove of pigs though Plan A, Plan B, and finally on to Plan C, which succeeds in pulling the sleepy farmer from impending disaster. Olson's illustrations flow right along with the story's action. In fact, youngsters will be able to "read" the whole story by following the brightly colored paintings and will find new details with each viewing. Reading this book aloud will create a cacophony of animal sounds that will reverberate throughout the library. Walton has once again had fun with language-this time with "group" vocabulary. An enjoyable selection.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

The rain would be coming soon. So Farmer Bob worked day and night and day and night to harvest his crops. A little rain would be good for his plants. But too much could destroy them. And Farmer Bob guessed there might be too much rain.

Finally the corn, the potatoes, the beans, the tomatoes—all were safe in the barn, stored up high where they'd stay dry. He'd tak them to market later.

But first, he had something important to do.
