Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This old, familiar song is brought back with words and illustrations in this addition to the "Little Golden Book" series. It begins with pleasant drawings in warm colors that show Old MacDonald on his farm with the chicks along—the first verse of the song. The story/song continues as he encounters his horses, turkeys, pigs, cows, donkeys, and sheep. Each animal makes a sound that is repeated in each verse until all the animals and their sounds are included. The animals are all friendly, and the farmer even finds donkeys in his house watching television and pigs taking a bath in his house. The last illustration shows the perplexed farmer in bed with his sleeping animals. The final page contains the musical notes and the first verse of the song. The traditional small size of the book and its golden spine make it a good addition to a collection of these classical books. Children could have fun singing the verses that include all the repetitive animal sounds as they watch the farmer caring for his rambunctious group of animals. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
