Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–This picture book opens with a removable invitation to Lucy Goosy's birthday party. As the bird contemplates which of the farm animals to invite, however, she finds fault with each potential guest. She seeks advice from Owl, who points out that no one is perfect, including Lucy herself. He encourages the critical goose to celebrate her friends' differences instead. Rhyming text with plenty of dialogue gets right to the heart of the story. “‘I can't invite Pig. She'll eat all the food.'/‘And Goat is always in such a bad mood!'” Alexandersen's artwork brings out Lucy's criticisms and will elicit giggles from children. Horse, for instance, sits eating a grass sandwich at a classroom desk. The final spread catches the party in full swing, wild with activity. An accompanying CD contains a pleasant mix of Gifford reading and singing, with appropriate sound effects added. It also includes Gifford singing an upbeat song about kids moving; unfortunately, the lyrics for that selection are not in the book. This story with a message would fit well into larger picture-book collections, but it's strictly an additional purchase.Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

I sent this wonderful book to my grandson, Elijah, in Tennessee. He is 5 and learning to read. My daughter-in-law states "he hasn't put it down, we kept re-reading it, and he now knows it by heart". They also loved the CD. Thankyou!

This was a really fun book for my five year granddaughter. She had me play the CD and look at the book over and over. We loved the different voices.

This is the 5th Party Animals book I have purchased. The illustrations are magnificent. The moral of the story is great. What I love even better is the CD included with the book. What a great narration. The swing song is what kids will love. I will be giving this book to all my friends that are having babies. It is a gift that will keep on giving. I wish this book was around 35 years ago when my kids were little.
