Another great book in the Click, Clack series - I only took off a star because it isn't as humorous as the other ones. It's a story about the new baby chick who won't sleep, so all the other animals try what they can to remedy the situation. I rotate books on our mantle for the changing holidays and seasons, and this is a great addition to our spring display.
Cronin and Lewis have done it again. They've created an adorable story about Farmer Brown and his animals. This time the focus is on the new arrival: a baby duckling. The excitement is palpable as the animals anxiously watch the egg until it hatches. But once the duckling has arrived all the animals and Farmer Brown are ready to sleep. Unfortunately, the duckling's constant peeping makes it impossible for them to sleep in the barn and so they all have to go outside to sleep. At least until duck comes up with a seemingly perfect solution. With duck though, things are never as simple as they seem. Another fun read from a consistently fun author and illustrator.
You simply cannot top this team of Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, when it comes to picture books for preschoolers (and for everyone else, too! Having a downer of a day? Pick up any of their books; you'll feel better fast!) When it comes to giving us all a book that satisfies, and "giggle-fies," your little one, while it makes you laugh, too, this is yet another winner from this duo. Poor Farmer Brown! Will he ever get the better of Duck?? I hope not! Perfect story line, adorable illustrations--it's all EXCELLENT.
My 2 year old loves all of Doreen Cronin's books, especially her series of Farmer Brown and Duck books. I gave this one to her for Easter (it is not a religious or Easter book, but since it involves a little chick as the main character it seemed appropriate). All the animals are excited for the hatching of a baby chick until it keeps them up all night peeping. Duck solves the problem in a rather creative way and confuses Farmer Brown. As a mom, I found the book quite humorous, especially as my daughter doesn't like to go to sleep either.
I have click clack moo which my 2 1/2 year old son enjoys but he favors click, clack, peep and so do I. The story about the farm animals trying to find ways to get the little duckling to fall asleep is really cute as are the illustrations.
I love this book. I love all of Doreen Cronin's books. I am a fan for life. This book is so funny and cute. Poor old Farmer Brown has a time with all of the noise. Children of all ages would like this book a lot. The pictures are funny and clever. The wording is just as cute as could be. I could go on and on about Farmer Brown and his troubles but this one is definitely a keeper and just lots of fun. I know that I have enjoyed reading it.
The book itself is in perfect condition, but I don't appreciate being sold a regular book and discovering I actually bought a book from a chick-fil-a happy meal that is not even close to the right size.
There are better books in this series BUT this one is still pretty funny! A new baby duck arrives in Farmer's Brown's barn and no one is going to get much sleep. Finally Duck figures out what to do to get the new arrival to sleep. Any family with a new baby will appreciate this dilemma and get a laugh out of how the little one can disrupt the whole household. Quack, quack!Book provided by publisher
