Cows give us milk, for ice cream and cheese. But my dog gives me kisses, and tail wags ... and fleas. Welcome to the barnyard! Eighteen rollicking poems explore the lives of farm animals. From a limerick about a rooster in love with a duck to an ode to the lazy life of a cow, these comically illustrated rhymes take a humorous look at our squealing and squawking animal friends.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–A fresh and funny poetic view of the overworked subject of farm animals is a tall order, but that's exactly what Pearson delivers. From goats on the roof to flying pigs that prefer the mud to the sky, each poem presents a consistently unique perspective. A nostalgic sense of place and mood dominate in selections such as "Heading Home," which describes a line of cows "...looking fine/in the glow of setting sun,/never varying their pace,/each one always in her place,/strolling home, her thoughts on hay,/day/by day/by day/by day." Slonim's hilarious ink-and-acrylic illustrations add energy and vitality to the rhymes. Each page is designed to complement the specific poem. For example, the spread for the short poem "Love" captures the poignancy of a heartbroken rooster who has fallen in love with a duck by placing the two far apart on a barren background: "But the rooster can't swim,/And the chances are slim/That his sweetheart will ever speak CLUCK." This is a clever, quick-reading collection with loads of child appeal.–Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
