Make Way For BooksSlightly exaggerated, yet whimsical illustrations bring farm life alive. They show readers how a word in context becomes its own sound, a perfect invitation to read along. A cow's "moo," a bird's "chirp," a stair's "creak," and a clock's "tick-tock-tick" have never been so engaging. An excellent introduction to onomatopoeia.
Publisher SummaryRooster crows,
Wake up, girls,
And little boys, too.
Breakfast ham pop-pops, cow moo as they're being milked, girls feed clucking hens, and boys split wood--wack! When chores are done, rockers squeak, and kids play games while Grandma's knitting needles click and the clock ticks.
Rhythms, rhyme, and onomatopoeia are used to describe a day in the life of a farm family.
Rhyming text divulges the many sounds heard on a farm, from a rooster's morning crow to an owl's goodnight call.
