The simple, sing-song verse is about farmyard animals from dawn to night, but preschoolers will enjoy the physicalness of the words ("we babble and cackle and squawk") and the nonsense ("mooing and chewing / Are what I like doing. / Do you moo when you chew your food?"). The big, simple, cartoonish double-page spreads in bright neon colors and simple cutout shapes look like flannel-board art, just right for sharing with the lapsit crowd, one on one or in a group.
