Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Blithe and bucolic, Westcott's illustrations add considerable zip to the perennial song favorite. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
Publisher's Weekly
"...a raucous, wonderfully ludicrous version of the familiar song..."
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This familiar song has been adapted and illustrated by Westcott. It appeared first as a picture book and now has been reissued in board book form. The rollicking text and delightful watercolor illustrations are full of humor. Kids will chortle at the little boy trying to mop up after the cats, ponder removing the pigs from the parlor and share his concern at the mess the cows are making in the kitchen. There is plenty more going on and the amazing adventure comes to a peaceful and orderly conclusion. But take note of those farm animals peering out from behind the bushes. 2000 (orig. 1989), Little Brown, Ages 18 mo. to 4, $5.95. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- Exuberant artwork brings frolicsome fun to this adaptation of an old favorite, toe-tapping American folk song. Nothing could be easier than to tend the family farm--or so a young lad thinks as he is left alone on a warm, lazy afternoon. But upon discovering the total chaos of `` . . .flies in the sugarbowl. . .cats in the buttermilk. . .pigs in the parlor'' . . .what can he do? Solution: gather all the creatures together for a resounding chorus of ``Skip to My Lou!'' Suddenly noticing that the merry mayhem is exceeding their time limits, all pitch in to clean up the mess, and as mother and father return from town, they find everything in apple-pie order. ``Phew!'' Pastel cartoons reminiscent of James Stevenson (but in brighter hues) treat viewers to unbridled action, and the engaging verse corresponds appropriately on each double-page spread. An expertly executed picture book, this is one to be treasured for its pure fun. Youngsters will love it. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH

    Sure to Bring Smiles!

    This book is my son's favorite (and mine too). He loves the happy tune. We sing this song everyday over and over! I often send this book as a gift to new babies.
