Enjoy a day with the farmer as he goes about his jobs on the farm. And there is so much to do, from feeding the animals, planting the crops, mending the fence and making his own breakfast to finally tucking himself safely into bed. Throughout the entire day the jolly farmer is accompanied by the joyful and tremendous noises of the farm but in his sleep the quiet farmer is not so quiet after all. This is a delightful book for all farm-interested, animal-obsessed children - who like making a lot of noise!

PreS–A very quiet farmer doesn't speak throughout the day but bids a fond "goodnight" to all of his animals at bedtime. From an early morning rising that begins with a rooster's crow, he goes about the business of taking care of his land and creatures. All the while, the onomatopoeic sounds he makes as he works are highlighted in the appealing pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. Going beyond animal calls, the author familiarizes youngsters with many different noises: the "Sizzle," "Bubble-de-blip," and "Gurgle" of breakfast being made; the "Click-clack" of the mower; and the "Whop-whop-bang" of a fence being repaired. This tale features smiling animals, sunshiny scenery, and an enviably contented man who enjoys his lot in life. With pictures bright and large enough to share with a group, this is a pleasant introduction to farm life and a variety of sounds.–Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
