Editorial Reviews

PreS-Gr 2-This cheerful cumulative tale begins when Farmer Felandro decides to go to bed early with a to-do list for the following day. The forgetful farmer is rudely awakened by different farm animals throughout the night because of chores he forgot about, such as putting the two big dogs in the hayloft, settling the cows in the barn, and letting the cats outside. By the time he resolves the situation, it is morning and the farmer has not slept. The humorous story is clever and the repetition will appeal to children. The book has a glossary in English and Spanish. The illustrations, like the story, are jubilant and charming. They complement the text perfectly, as they are full of emotion. The bilingual format for this book works well. A great addition to any library collection.

Farmer Felandro goes to bed early to get rest for a busy tomorrow. He has to milk the cows, repair the fence, mow the hay and climb the silo. Lying in bed he hears a noise. He sits up in bed. He has forgotten to put the little goats to bed. He gets out of bed, puts on his boots and goes out side to chase the little goats into their pen. That done, he returns to bed. He is very tired and needs his rest to prepare for a busy tomorrow. Suddenly another noise comes from the yard. The dogs are barking. Farmer Felandro puts on his boots and goes out to chase the dogs into the hayloft so they will not bark all night. Each time he gets back in bed, his list of chores for the next days gets more and more jumbled. This scenario is repeated three more times until morning has come and Farmer Felandro just stays up. The text is in both English and Spanish. A glossary of words in both languages is included at the end. 2003, Raven Tree Press, Ages 3 to 8.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Poor Farmer Felandro is in dire need of a good night's rest and is all too aware that, "Morning comes early." But sleep is not in the cards for the hapless farmer, who is awakened again and again by his animals needing to be let out of barns, taken into barns, put in pens, shut in stalls, etc. Just when he gets one group down, another goes off, until finally morning has come and he can just get up. Students will be amused as the poor farmer lists off his chores for the next day in a more and more garbled form. What starts out as "-milk the cows, repair the fence, mow the hay, and climb the silo" ends up: "-repair the cow, climb the fence, milk the hay, and mow the silo." The acrylic illustrations are charmingly blocky, done in warm earth-toned colors and comfortingly round shapes. The Spanish translation, located on the bottom half of each page and separated from the English by an inset drawing, is clear, crisp, and maintains the humor of the English original. Pair this book with Doreen Cronin's Click, Clack, Moo (S & S, 2000) for a barnyard-themed storytime featuring strong-willed animals. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Beautiful illustrations-humorous, busy, matte-surfaced, revealing the canvas texture of the original acrylic paintings-highlight this twisting account of a farmer's attempt to get a good night's sleep. Before he can nod off, the young goats start bleating after having been left out. When farmer Felandro goes out to pen them up, he accidentally wakes the dogs, which wait until he returns to bed to begin howling. Each attempt to get some peace and quiet creates another reason for noise, providing children with a series of pleasurable instances of repetition and predictability. Besides the humor provoked by Felandro's grumbling, children will also enjoy the way he continually confuses tomorrow's tasks as he tries to settle down-does he milk the cow or the silo? Does he mow the hay or the fence? Both Spanish and English texts flow smoothly and may even introduce a few unfamiliar farm terms to some readers. Midgett's illustrations are reminiscent of Joe Cepeda's rowdy, good-humored style and serve to prove useful at story time and in farm units for primary-grade students. (Picture book. 4-8)
