Synopsis

Get ready to join in a joyful rendition of neighs, clucks, oinks, baas—and boos!

Does a toddler like to make animal sounds? Yes! Then follow Judy Hindley’s multicultural crew of little ones to the farmyard, where they gleefully peek through fences, scratch dogs’ bellies, cuddle cats, and celebrate the distinctive - and easily imitated - sound each animal makes. Once again, Judy Hindley’s rollicking rhymes are irresistible, and Brita Granström’s tots adorably familiar, making for a happily noisy romp that readers will want to shout aloud.
