Picture Book Review: Old MacDonald Had Her Farm
Old MacDonald Had Her Farm
Written by: JonArno Lawson

* In this take on the classic "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" the farmer is female. On her farm she has the vowels a, e, i, o, u. When she comes across the letter "a" the author lists what the farmer would do.....which include all verbs and nouns that have the short a sound, and so on. The pictures are colorful, humorous....and busy! There is a lot going on in these pictures. My daughter had a fun time reading this one aloud and kind of dominated our reading. However, I'd like to go back and have my son, a beginning reader try reading this one. Overall, this is a nonsensical, cute read.
