Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

While Farmer Dougal is still asleep one morning, Sheep and his friends find the perfect opportunity to have fun on the farm. Climbing aboard a tractor, Sheep tells Cat, “This is the sound the tractor makes when you turn the engine on . . . BA-A-A-A-A-A.” Cat contributes the sound when the tractor “starts to wiggle and jiggle . . . PURRRRR.” Progressively, other animals join in, but after Farmer Dougal awakes, it’s scatter time, leaving all quiet on the farm—for now. With simple, sprightly, repetitive text, this amusing story invites lively, participatory read-alouds. The cheerful color illustrations incorporate playful fonts and depict the expressive animals in humorously contrasting scenes, first piled together on the tractor and then oh-so-innocently grazing under the suspicious farmer’s watchful eye. Their vocal group game makes a dramatic fun denouement. This festive, charming tale conveys how imaginative friends set playtime in motion. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Shelle Rosenfeld

Review

'With a nod to Dr. Seuss and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and rhythm as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining.' Child Education Reviews for Duck in the Truck: 'Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality.' TES Primary 'Alborough's text is perfect for reading out loud and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations gives an animated, live-action feel.' Junior 'Colourful, arresting and busting with action.' Child Education Praise for Hit the Ball Duck: 'A really great story; the best Duck book so far.' The Guardian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Farmer Dougal is fast asleep one morning, and Sheep decides to pretend to drive the big red tractor. Sheep tells Cat, "This is the sound the tractor makes when you turn the engine on...BA-AA-A-A-A-A."
Cat wants to play, too. Cat can make the sound of the engine as it wiggles and jiggles. Not long thereafter, several other farm animals want to join in the fun, and they each have a sound to contribute to the game. Then suddenly, Farmer Dougal wakes up...
This very humorous story incorporates fun, repetitive phrases that will have kids clamoring to join in the reading. Coupled with the funny illustrations, this selection will be a guaranteed winner with younger children.

Go to Jez Alborough's website and watch the video of him reading the book then buy it for your child or for anyone teaching little kids. Two and three year olds absolutely loved this book. Even the four and five's loved it. Mr. Alborough knows exactly what lights children up with his stories and the art is wonderful. Can't say enough about how fun this book is.

My 3 yo son loves this book - great for the gear head, noise making young kid! The book takes you through the farm animals doing imaginative play where they act out taking the farmers tractor for a ride. Each animal makes a different sound and they all ask politely to join in to the game. Soon the whole farm is involved in this noisy tractor ride. They do it so well that the farmer wakes up thinking his tractor is being stolen. My son loves all the noise and the surprise wake up of the farmer. You can watch this book on the author's site as he reads it to the kids. Super cute. My son uses the book to "read along" with Jez. Good messages for kids - sharing, taking turns, including everyone, using polite asking. My 6 yo daughter likes it too. But enjoys Billy's big breakfast better.

I knew this book would be a favorite when my toddler brought it to me from the library stack three times in one week. The animal sounds matched with tractor sounds are clever and fun, both for me to read and for my two-year-old to repeat. We have enjoyed several of Jez Alborough's books, but this is our favorite so far.

"The Gobble Gobble Moooooo Tractor Book" is a lusty, noisy, merry farm animals' sounds story that will charm children ages 2-6. Farmer Dougal is sleeping late, so all the animals pretend to mimic the sound the tractor makes when he turns the engine on. For some reason, the tractor sounds come out a little different from each animal. For the sheep, it baaaas, for the cat, it purrrs, and for the turkey, it gobble gobbles! Will Farmer Dougal ever wake up? What if the animals manage to make the tractor go? Children will love the colorful foldout illustrations and the wildly funny sounds from all the different animals. "The Gobble Gobble Mooooooo Tractor Book" is a delightful experience for preschool children to read and love.

I have a 3 year old, and we checked this book out from our local library. He loves it so much, I had to look up a copy to purchase. He usually just sits and listens when I read, but the repeated animal sounds in this book are very engaging and he echoes every one. Very fun, and very cute!
