Product description

Review

From an alluring cover with a rooster in full crow to its concluding, gently ironic ode to the silence of rabbits, this book will make an unusually interesting choice for farm-animal storytimes.
--The Horn Book (starred review)

Handsome...From toddlers to the youngest poets, children will delight in the fun and beauty on display here.
--Booklist (starred review)

Meade's beautiful, color woodblock prints that superbly reflect the mood and action in the poetry.
--School Library Journal

Energetic woodcuts accompany playfully simple poems as they give young readers an engaging tour of the barnyard...a worthwhile addition.
--Kirkus Reviews

[The text is] pithy and crisply rhymed, making for easy reading and listening...Meade's watercolored woodblock illustrations are elegant yet homely, cheerfully depicting the unpolished charm of a well-filled pigpen.
--BCCB

Like the vibrant rooster on this oversize book's jacket, Meade's colored woodcut prints are so bold they seem to crow at the reader.
--Publishers Weekly

Elliott's verses capture a reverence for animals unfamiliar to cityfolk, and Meade's watercolor and woodcut illustrations...are serene and beautiful.
--BookPage

Brings the entire barnyard to life.
--Playthings

David Elliott s short snappy rhymes pair perfectly with Holly Meade's energetic woodcut watercolor illustrations.
--Antelope Valley Press

The woodblock prints and watercolors...are detailed and enchanting.
--The Capital Times

An enchantingly illustrated poetic ode to barnyard life.
--Midwest Book Review

This is one picture book that your preschooler will want read over and over again.
--Eclectic Homeschool Online

Simple and lyrical.
--Central Coast Freelance

David Elliott's graceful, simple verse and Holly Meade's exquisite woodcut and watercolor illustrations capture a world that is at once timeless yet disappearing from view -- the world of the family farm.
--Anokaberry blog

Pleasingly simple yet verbally sophisticated verses...large, delightfully bold, animated woodcuts...begs to be read aloud.
--SLJ's Curriculum Connections

Deliciously old-fashioned.
--Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens 2009

A delightful collection of poems that are funny, beautifully descriptive, and perfect for reading out loud.
--Through the Looking Glass Reviews
