Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-KA pull-tab, lift-the-flap, pop-up version of the favorite song illustrated with colorful cartoon artwork. Cony includes the usual animal sounds and adds the farmers tractor with a chug chug here and a chug chug there. Individual lap-sitters will enjoy making its wheels wobble along the gravel road or opening the henhouse door so that the farmer can snatch an egg. Old MacDonalds black-and-white dog pokes its smiling face onto almost every page. The anticipated finale commands a double-page spread with a finger-slotted wheel to rerun the verses that have come before. A cleverly engineered and entertaining storytime filler for small groups.Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

My 15 month old LOVES this book. I had never sung this song to her before we bought it but now it is a big favourite. She learned the words farmer and tractor from the book. She learned e-i-e-i-o. She loves the flaps, the pull tabs and the dials. However, she decapitated the three little pigs in the first few days and ripped the farmer right out of his tractor in another unattended moment with the book. I now give it to her only under supervision so I can protect its moving parts. I don't know at what age toddlers become less destructive. However, it seems like this book might be better for older toddlers, since the younger ones like mine will probably love it to pieces!

E-I-E-I-O! Old McDonald Had a Farm brings to life the classic song through interactive, pop up cartoon pictures of a chugging tractor whose tires move, baaing sheep, clucking chicks, oinking pigs, and mooing cows who chew their cud and roll their eyes. Cony's use of pictures, which children can manipulate, adds zest to the experience of reading as children read (or sing along) to the tune of Old McDonald. It is a timeless song set apart by Cony's ingenious manipulation of the idea of a pop up children's book that will hold up to much use.

This is a wonderful book, so cute, esp. the page which Old Macdonald driving its red tractor. My son just can't have enough of it but I agree, it's pretty delicate for a 2 years old to handle. whilst I'm typing this, my son just pointed at the book on the computer. Should definitley buy this book, if can afford it, should buy 2, one for the kid to play with, the other use to read it with him.

My baby learned to say "e-i-e-i-o" while chewing, tearing apart, and turning the pages of this book.
