Barnyard Song

Illustrated by Robert Bender


Reviews

“In prose reminiscent of the ‘Old MacDonald’ song, Greene develops an amusing story. The farm animals catch the flu and their usual ‘Buzz, buzz/Mew, mew/Cock-a-doodle-doo/Oink, oink/Baa, baa/Moo, moo, moo’ become ‘Buzz, ‘CHOO!/Mew, SNIFF!/Cock-a-SQUAWK!-le-doo/Oink, SQUEAL/Baa, SNORT!/Moo, A-H-H-H-H-CHOO!’ All ends happily when Farmer cooks up and feeds them batches of healthy soup until their voices return and the familiar, noisy farm life continues…A storytime winner.”
*Starred review, School Library Journal

“Greene’s funny, rhyming text…will have kids vocalizing right along in no time…”
