Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
These 43 songs about barnyard animals include "The Old Grey Mare," "Be Kind to Your Web-Footed Friends," and "Go Tell Aunt Rhody." Adam Stemple's simple arrangements are well within the grasp of youngsters with a year's piano lessons behind them. Guitar chords are also marked.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
If you're looking for a song collection, that combines animals and fun, classic and silly, you'll want this book. It is a great resource for parents who will find between its covers the music and words for forty-three animal songs with enlightening introductions and delightful illustrations. Musical arrangements by Adam Stemple.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-An unusual, delightful compilation of barnyard-related folk songs. Beginning with ``Old MacDonald Had a Farm,'' Yolen includes ditties that she heard as a child either from her parents, at school, or at camp. Many of them will be familiar to youngsters, such as ``The Cat Came Back'' and ``Go Tell Aunt Rhody.'' Those that aren't as familiar will be fun to learn. Each selection is introduced with a brief source note. The simple musical scores are good-sized and well spaced on the page; guitar chords are included. Hoffman's attractive colored-ink illustrations handsomely depict stylized animals and people. Narrow geometric borders decorate the top and bottom of each page. There are many books of children's folk songs available, but this may be the only one that features solely farm animals. It makes a nice companion volume to this talented team's Jane Yolen's Mother Goose Songbook (Boyds Mills, 1992). Hiawyn Oram's A Creepy Crawly Song Book (Farrar, 1993) is another attractive presentation, but includes only songs about insects.-Beth Irish, Orange Public Library, CA
Lauren Peterson
In a companion to her popular "Jane Yolen's Mother Goose Songbook" (1992), Yolen delivers a lively collection of 43 songs featuring animals from the farm. She introduces each selection with a brief comment about the song's origins or an interesting bit of nostalgic trivia. Stemple once again provides arrangements for both piano and guitar, and Hoffman has returned with her unusual colored-ink illustrations. A combination of the fantastic and the real, the barnyard creatures dance across pages decorated with patterned borders along top and bottom. At the beginning of each selection is a word or phrase describing the manner in which the song should be sung--"wistfully," or "jauntily," for example. Parents and teachers may find these directives helpful for building vocabulary and for teaching the importance of mood and expression in singing.
