The format allows for interactive reading and more opportunities to practice 'talking like the animals.'

Content Awareness Factors:

It's the same old collection of farm animals.


Little Kid Reaction

Immediately asked to read "Giggle" again. It's been months now & its still a must-read at nap and bedtimes. If we're not trying to read it ourselves, we are "Duck-ing" out loud.

Parent Reaction

A cute story, with familiar animals and just the kind of humor and mischief toddlers love.

Type of Book:
This is a humorous tale where the animals appear to run the farm and re-direct their caretaker's activities by writing notes.
Educational Themes:

None, really. Just beware of Duck carrying a pencil & paper.

Reading Level:

Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
7 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 7
Age of child:
Started reading with child 21 months old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow it first, just to see if its one you'll like. It's one of those books that could be read lots over the years, or just as easily borrowed periodically when you need a laugh.
