Old MacDonald Had a Truck Hardcover – March 1, 2016
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

PreS-Gr 1—A new twist on a classic story and song, this book is just pure fun. All readers know about Old MacDonald and the things on his farm. But they will love the new toys he has in this tale. All the usual animal friends are present in the illustrations, but he's also got excavators, bulldozers, and dump trucks. The lyrics of the song may have a nonsense-type flow, but that will make singing/telling the story that much more fun. The illustrations are rich and tell as much of the story as the text does. Gender roles are slightly flipped, as Old MacDonald's partner in the book is a woman who clearly knows her way around the farm and a steamroller, too. This is a book that could be used to teach a multitude of lessons. VERDICT Highly recommended as a first purchase, this entertaining read will bring a new dimension to storytime.—Shannan Hicks, J.S. Clark Elementary School Library, LA

My almost four year old does not enjoy singing Old MacDonald Had a Farm that much anymore, but he can’t get enough of this story. He makes me stop on almost every page to investigate the various construction vehicles and the farmyard antics. As a parent, I loved pointing out the E-I-E-I-O to reinforce letter recognition. Goetz also puts a fun spin on the original song by switching up that last “O” in the refrain with words that relate to the vehicles such as “slow”. Also worth mentioning is that Old MacDonald has a wife who is not only a talented mechanic, but also a monster truck driver! It’s impossible not to enjoy this gem of a story.
This is a great book to be used in a farmyard or construction themed storytime, teaching onomatopoeia in the classroom or one on one with a child at home.
