Synopses & Reviews
This farm favorite is now a board book, perfect for preschoolers.
"Cows in the pasture, moo, moo, moo. Roosters in the barnyard, cock-a-doodle-doo . . ."
It's another noisy morning on the farm, and all of the animals are where they should be -- except Goose. And where is Goose? Young children will enjoy clucking, mucking, mewing, and cooing while they search for Goose on every gorgeously illustrated spread.
"Lush colors, startled, wide-eyed animals, and bold, black print make each page of this latest offering from a new Caldecott honoree jump with activity."
--Kirkus Reviews, pointer
From pasture to hayloft, cows moo, kittens mew, hens cluck, and pigs muck. But Goose is hiding. An energetic text filled with rhyming barnyard noises invites young readers to chime in. Children will also enjoy playing hide-and-seek with Goose, who appears on every spread. Full color.
