Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This board book is a simple book of animal sounds that allows the child to interact. It allows the child to correct the pig sounds and encourages a child to make their own noise at the end when the animals finally get quiet. Noises of cows, sheep, pigs, rhinoceroses, dogs, cats, ducks, and horses are presented. The book is written in rhyme as well, so young children will soon be able to recite the book as it is read aloud. The pictures are drawn simply in cartoon style with plain-colored backgrounds. This is a great book for very young toddlers who would enjoy learning and making the animal sounds as the book is read aloud. 2004 (orig. 1982), Little Simon, Ages 1 to 3.

Meet the Author

Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton is a popular American humorist, songwriter, children’s author, and illustrator. Boynton has written and illustrated more than forty books for both children and adults, as well as more than four thousand greeting cards and four music albums. She has designed—for various companies—calendars, wallpaper, bedding, stationery, paper goods, clothing, jewelry, and plush toys.

Biography

In the 1980s, it was hard to enter a gift shop without seeing Sandra Boynton's name. Her humorous pen-and-watercolor cartoons of hippos, ewes, and her famous turkeys (you know, symbolizing the human ones in life who can get you down) were emblazoned on cards, mugs, stickers, stationery...and of course, her wonderful, wacky books, the first of which was 1979's Hippos Go Berserk! .

Boynton began her career as a greeting card illustrator with aspirations of theater directing; but having a family changed her focus, and she began devoting herself full-time to art. Her board books, filled with goofy animal illustrations and rhyming verse, are toddler staples. But their appeal to adults is undeniable, and she has also written a number of humor books for the general public.

Given the rhythmic, buoyant style of her writing, it was only natural that Boynton would become involved in companion music to her books. From the '90s on, several of her titles included accompanying CDs, culminating in the 2002 release of Philadelphia Chickens, a CD-book extravaganza written with composer Michael Ford and featuring musical performances by several high-profile stars.

Who knows what lies ahead for this irrepressible force of nature? If there's one thing Sandra Boynton has proved in the course of her remarkably diverse career, it's that she's not lost her capacity to surprise us. (Thank heavens!)

    Happiness is Moo, Baa, La La La!

    If I had to sum this book up in one word it would be FUN! We received this book as a gift; it was one of the first books that my 6 month old daughter and I read together. She loves the bright colors, animals and most of all the rhyming rhythm that this book supplies. In fact, this is one of her favorite books. Even when the book is no where in sight, if she is having a cranky moment...just saying Moo, Baa, La La La! snaps her right out of it and she is suddenly smiling! Wonderfully simplistic book! I highly recommend it!

    Boynton classic!

    A must have for any kid's library. This book has survived our three kids. Our last is 2 1/2 and this is one of her favorites. It teaches animals and animal sounds with no effort! Plus, it is a first step in reading, as all my kids were able to essentially "read" this book before they could read. Fun pictures and silly rhyming, what more could you ask for?

    My 1 year old daughter loves this book. The writing is short enough that I can read the page just as she's ready to turn it. She barks when we get to the page with the dogs. It is a cute little book!

    Great book!

    My kids own all of the books by Sandra Boyton. I must say they are great for night time stories. I would say ages 2-4, good buy they are short but good. My two cents...

    Disappointing

    Great little book, but a poorly renditioned e-book version. The pinch & stretch feature works, but not in any any way that benefits the reader. Also there is no interactivity in any other way that my little ones have quickly come to expect. (ie: no touchable words to aide reading skills or touchable figures that make a noise or perform an action)

    This book should be upgraded ASAP.

    Caveat Emptor: this is NOT the interactive version!

    I was in a hurry and browsing from my Nook. I thought this was the Loud Cow version of the book, similar to the "Good Night Book" that my 2 year old loves so much. To my disgust, it is simply a static book with a not-too-exciting narrator that costs *exactly the same as the fun version.* Very, very frustrated and wish I could get my money back.
    This version might be worth a buck, if I was feeling generous...

    Love Sandra Boynton books

    My grandson is nearly 17 months old and loves this book. He comes into my home office and hands me the book and, of course, I have to read it. The pigs that go "La, la, la" always make him smile.

    Moo, Baa, La, La, La Review

    My entire family did enjoy the book. It was simplistic, but that is also what made it fun for my 22 month old. The illustrations were colorful and fun! As a mother, I wanted a little more depth to the book. Overall, it continues to be a fun book for all!
