Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–A very quiet farmer doesn't speak throughout the day but bids a fond "goodnight" to all of his animals at bedtime. From an early morning rising that begins with a rooster's crow, he goes about the business of taking care of his land and creatures. All the while, the onomatopoeic sounds he makes as he works are highlighted in the appealing pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. Going beyond animal calls, the author familiarizes youngsters with many different noises: the "Sizzle," "Bubble-de-blip," and "Gurgle" of breakfast being made; the "Click-clack" of the mower; and the "Whop-whop-bang" of a fence being repaired. This tale features smiling animals, sunshiny scenery, and an enviably contented man who enjoys his lot in life. With pictures bright and large enough to share with a group, this is a pleasant introduction to farm life and a variety of sounds.–Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

I've read Noisy Farm repeatedly to my three- and two-year-old sons since it arrived in the post. They know the words, they know the sounds, they can't get enough of it. A lovely little children's book.

Format: Hardcover
The farmer awakes every morning to the sound of a rooster crowing. He begins doing his chores about the farm, staying quiet for the entire day, as he listens to the sounds around him. The oinking of the pigs, mooing of the cows, plink-plink of the milk dripping into the pail, and so much more. However, once night falls, and it's time for the farmer to head inside for a good night's sleep, he bids everything on his farm a kind farewell until tomorrow.

OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM is one of the best loved songs/rhymes to hit the kindergarten playground, and THE NOISY FARM bears many similarities to that song. The various noises of the farm animals, as well as the noises created by the farmer's daily chores will help your youngster learn what's to be found on a farm. Very young readers will adore this book, and for an extra learning tool, be sure to teach them the song OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM, to get them even more excited about farm life.
