Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-When a rooster tries to wake up everyone on the farm, he finds he has lost his voice and can only whisper. Pigs, cows, ducks, and the farmer sleep on, until the cow offers to help. When she finally masters a "COCK-A-DOODLE-MOO," everyone awakens with a laugh. This is such a jolly way to start the day that the cow teaches the rooster "COCK-A-DOODLE-MOO" as well. Bold cartoon illustrations in colored markers carry out the cheery mood of this pleasing story.

From Booklist

Ages 3^-6. When the rooster loses his voice and can only give a tiny cock-a-doodle-do, all the farm animals and even the farmer sleep on. At last, the cow opens her eyes and sees the rooster's predicament. The two team up, but it takes a while to work out the wrinkles of their collaboration. The cow tries yelling "mock-a-moodle-mood and "sock-a-noodle-noo," and finally, under the insistent rooster's tutelage, comes out with "cock-a-doodle-moo." That's close enough to wake up the farm with a laugh. In a nice twist, once the rooster gets his voice back, he and the cow continue working the a.m. shift, with the rooster providing the cock-a-doodles and the cow the moos. Most knows what kids like, and that's as true here as in his many other books for children. Both text and art are full of clever details. Children will especially enjoy all the brightly colored creatures and the way the animals' sounds are delivered in cartoon-style balloons. Lots of fun for little ones, individually or in groups.

Our seven-year-old brought this book home from his first grade class to read to his three-year-old brother. It was an instant hit. Bernard Most wraps a farm animal dilemma around some very funny language and a witty conclusion making this our youngest son's favorite book! If you have a preschooler who's learning to read or just enjoying stories, here's a book that will capture their attention and increase their enthusiasm for printed language. It's a sure hit!

My two year old has apraxia of speech. This book was recommended to us and we are not disappointed. This book is fun, imaginative, and great for reading out loud. My children giggle while I read it and enjoy all the silly sounds made by the animals. I highly recommend this book.

My almost three year-old grandson loves this! It's all in the delivery, how it is read. Very sweet without any negative overtones or less than desirable language. I read it once on Christmas morning to him, and he immediately wanted me to read it again.

This book is a fun book to read with children. I have used it in story times for years. Kids love the silliness and if you dare to scratch your throat up a little bit, they think it's hilarious when the rooster tries to crow with a sore throat. The book lends itself to silliness and education as well. Not only can you use the story to start giggles, you can use it to teach animal sounds and farm subjects among other things. I recently read it with my eight month old nephew, and sure enough it got laughter out of him too. Try it and have fun.

We first checked this book out at the library and we liked it so much that we just had to buy it. It is such a cute and goofy story, and so much fun to read. The rooster on the farm has lost his voice, so he asks the cow to take his place and wake up the farmer and the other animals each morning by saying "Cock-a-Doodle-Do"! The cow just can't seem to get it right, which leads to lots of laughs. I highly recommend it for kiddos from ages one to six. My five year old loves it!
