An entertaining collection of poetry, accompanied by charming illustrations, invites youngsters to take a rollicking romp through the barnyard, where a rooster wakes up the farm, a sheepdog barks incessantly, and cows begin to moo!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-This bright, inviting book introduces a farm's inhabitants. The first spread shows the barnyard from outside the fence, with all the animals that live inside. Then, the pigs, donkey, ducks, and geese and others all introduce themselves through a lively, rhyming, first-person verse and an illustration full of movement and color. The visit ends as night falls, but not before readers meet the nighttime animals. A final two-page spread takes children back outside the fence as the rural denizens go to sleep and the fox sneaks off to hunt prey. Sound words are scattered on some of the pages, a device that might prove somewhat confusing to very young listeners. "Wag! Wag!" appears next to the dog's tail, rather than the sound the animal makes. "Wriggle" and "snuffle" appear for the pigs even though every three-year-old knows a pig says, "oink." And geese are supposed to "honk," not "cackle" or "squawk." Still, these are minor flaws that do not overwhelm the book's many virtues. It has a lively read-aloud text and the clearly drawn, easily identified animals are filled with personality.
