Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The farm animals are told by the dog that "It's time!" First the cat runs out the door to tell the pig, and then the pig informs the hen who then tells the cow. All the animals race to the barn and what do they find¾the dog has just given birth to three little puppies. The language pattern is predictable but the choice of words is interesting and has a delightful rhythm "...the hen hollered, Wow! She left with a strut." Parents and teachers will enjoy reading the book and kids will delight in the ending. Even though the surprise will be gone after the initial reading, the pictures and text are interesting enough that it will be one requested several times. Pair this with Is it Time?, which has a similar format but deals with the birth of a new baby. Part of the "Harper Growing Tree" series. 2002, HarperFestival/HarperCollins,
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-"It's time," a scruffy gray-and-white dog declares to an orange cat, and the feline happily runs off to spread the news. She repeats the phrase to a pig, who passes it on to a hen, and so on, until all of the farm animals are gathered together in the barn. When the dog moves aside and tells her friends to look, they hold back an enthusiastic cheer, whispering a gentle "Welcome" instead, "For there in a heap/lay three new puppies/fast asleep." Deady uses simple language, catchy rhymes, and a repeated refrain to build a sense of anticipation. This feeling of excitement is reflected in the brightly colored art, which shows a cast of appealing animals running to welcome the new litter. Textured brush strokes and the slightly stylized appearance of the creatures give the pictures the look of folk paintings. An easy-to-handle size makes this title a great step up from board books for toddlers.-Joy Fleishhacker, formerly at School Library Journal Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
" ‘It's time!' said the dog / on the old barn floor. / ‘Good news!' said the cat, / and she ran out the door." Part of the Growing Tree series, this enjoyable barnyard tale of a dog about to give birth is conveyed with rhythmic quatrains and a predictable pattern. Word travels quickly on the farm as each animal takes its turn informing another (" ‘It's time!' called the cat / to the pig in the pen" and " ‘It's time called the pig, / and the hen hollered, ‘Wow!' ") Broad, textured brushstrokes give Newton's (Where Are My Chicks?, 2002, etc.) full-bleed illustrations a folkloric feel; uncluttered, they put the focus on the animals, making it easier for youngsters to connect text and image. Before long, all the animals have assembled; in one spread, Newton pictures them bounding across a lush, green meadow, bodies elongated and legs outstretched. Spread across the length of the page, another scene shows the animals, with wide-eyed expressions, as they hang their heads over the barn door. The tale concludes by cycling back to the start: " ‘Yes, it's time!' said the dog. / ‘Come and look over here.' " Unfortunately, the final illustration falters, as the puppies appear too big to be newborn (two of them together nearly match the size of their mother). Still, the structure will engage the youngest audience and "Tips for reading and sharing" suggest interactive teaching strategies for parents. (Picture book. 3-6)
