My Thoughts:

This is a very cute children's story.

I would primarily recommend Pre-K through 3rd grade for this book. My 3 year old also enjoyed the story and she laughed a lot.

This story focuses on the barnyard animals wanting to win a talent show at the local fair. They practice at night when Farmer Brown thinks they are asleep. Farmer Brown is very suspicious of the animals so he watches them constantly, except for at night when he listens outside of the barn thinking that the sounds he is hearing are the animals snoring. When in actuality, the animals are practicing.

I love the different texts used in the book for the animal sounds. And I really love the illustrations. I think they illustrate the story very well!

One of my favorite things from the book, is when the animals are practicing "singing" the animal noises written really do sound like the song, and you can't help but read them in tune with the song they represent. I think it is adorable and the kids find it to be hilarious.

My daughters love this book, and I highly recommend it for other boys and girls that enjoy funny books about animals. This book did not disappoint.
