Slightly 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 Summary
Rhyming text divulges the many sounds heard on a farm, from a rooster's morning crow to an owl's goodnight call.

Breakfast ham pop-pops, cows moo as they're being milked, girls feed clucking hens, and boys split wood--whack! When chores are done, rockers squeak, and kids read and play games while Grandma's knitting needles click and the clock ticks. Jim Aylesworth uses rhythms that are reminiscent of reel music, rhyme, and onomatopoeia to write about a day in the life of a farm family. To illustrate this joyful text, Brad Sneed draws inspiration from the American regionalism art movement and creates figures that are earthy, yet elegant and heroic. This book is a celebration of work, play, family, food and farm life!
