Format: Hardcover
My preschool children love this book about a kind farmer and her animals. As the impatient animals demand breakfast, love, and attention from the sleepy farmer, parents and children can draw some humorous parallels to their own family mornings!

The pictures are great, and you can never go wrong with farm animals to capture a child's interest. The latent feminist in me was very pleased to discover that the farmer was a woman. I've read this to my 2 1/2 year old son at least fifty times, and he keeps asking it for it!

Format: Hardcover
The Grumpy Morning is a fun book to read to youngsters. Filled with ryhming sentences, the text seems to roll of off your tongue. Young children will enjoy hearing about the noise and ruckus the farm animals create when they realize they have not been fed. This misfortune creates the mood for The Grumpy Morning. After travelling through the farm with each animal, the author takes you into the farmers bedroom, who seems to have slept through her morning ritual of feeding her animals. As she is awoke by the noise of the grumpy animals, she emerges with a smile on her face and proceeds to feed and love her animals.The story is told from the point of view of a barn owl, who cannot go to sleep because of all of the noise that morning. The final page of the book shows the owl in his nestm finally ready to go to sleep, now that his friends are fed, happy, and most importantly quiet.

My toddler daughter absolutely loves this book. She likes seeing the farm animals and making the animal sounds. She loves to find the owl on each page. I enjoy the rhyming and the simple story. We enjoy this book so much I bought a second copy because we are wearing out the book!

This is a very good book for preschoolers who quickly identify the common farm animals and their sounds. It is rhyming so it can be sung, which totally delights children. The illustrations are nice and colorful and the story is short and simple so the youngest children can enjoy it. I don't think anyone remains grumpy after reading it and seeing the nice farm "woman" feed and love her animals after oversleeping and making them all hungry and grumpy.

Format: Paperback
This is an adorable book about farm animals, the sounds they make and the food they eat. The kids love it and it lends itself well to discussions about the animal's needs and habits.
