Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With its flaps, pull tabs and furry textures, Moo offers a whole interactive barnyard of fun for toddlers learning all the clucks, oinks, and cock-a-doodle-doo of their favorite animals.

Publishers Weekly
Using a formula similar to its predecessors, Cat and Dog, Van Fleet's interactive board book identifies farm animals using simple, playful rhymes: "Mommy cow,/ Baby calf,/ Shaggy daddy bull./ Moo cow,/ Milk the cow—/ grab the udder, pull!" (The farmer's hands milk the cow at the pull of a tab, while a cat turns its mouth toward the spraying milk.) Textures—a woolly sheep, a duck's downy chest feathers—provide a touch-and-feel aspect, while flaps and pop-ups make this a playful excursion. Ages 2–up. (Aug.)

VAN FLEET, Matthew. Moo. photos by Brian Stanton.
PreS–This interactive board book dazzles the senses by portraying farm animals’ sounds and textures. Nimble fingers can manipulate pages that include lifting flaps to reveal surprises, pulling and pushing tabs that create animal actions, and touching textures that represent animal fur and feathers. Touch and sound combine when listeners discover a rubber duck among the real ones and push a pad that makes the toy squeak. Children will learn the names for male and female, adult and young of each variety (“Mommy ewe, Daddy ram, Lambs just born”). The minimal text includes rhythm and rhyme. Stanton’s full-color photographs contribute to the authenticity of the animals and the sensations stimulated in this book. Children are in store for an enriching, tactile-rich experience.–Diane Antezzo, Ridgefield Library, CT
School Library Journal, November 2011

A New York Times Bestseller

This multipurpose book follows the same format as the creators’ Dog (2007) and Cat (2009), expanding the concept to include various farm animals like sheep, chicken, pigs, and horses. Crisp animal photos are arrayed against a white background, and the spreads feature different interactive elements from fuzzy touch patches to spring-loaded tabs that put the critters in motion, to flaps that reveal simple pop-ups. The text offers rhythmic morsels of information, such as the goat page that reads, “Mommy nanny, / Daddy billy, / Little kids butt.” A hefty and handsome barnyard book. — Booklist

    Cute

    It's a super cute book. My little girl likes going through the pictures but gets bored quickly. She really likes "Dog" book by this author.
