I liked this book for two reasons. The first reason if the characters. Each animal character in the story has a unique personality, and make a sound unique to that species. The second reason are the illustrations. Like many of her book Denise Fleming, uses simple animal-like shapes to create the setting of a "Barnyard". The overall theme of this book is to inform the young reader about all the noises you would hear at a barn. ( )

45 months- really ideal for the under two year old crowd. Animal names and sounds and bright colors. ( )

Summary: There are many different types of animals in the barnyard, but one is particular, Goose, seems to be hardest to find. The reader can see Goose in the background of each page, but we never see him up close until the very end when it shows he was chasing a butterfly.

Personal Reaction: I loved the colors and the way the pictures of animals related to the sounds they make. The anticipation of finding Goose, I feel, would keep children interested.

Classroom Extension:
1) Each student could have cut outs of different barnyard animals and paste them to a picture of a barn. Lastly, they could hide their Goose like in the story.
2)Children could re-enact each noise the animals made. ( )

I get 25 librarian points deducted from me today for forgetting just how wonderful this book is. The goose and butterfly on every page, the bright colors, the movement on each spread are all great. The text scans perfectly and has some interesting, less common noises (burp, shriek, muck) thrown in with the familiar ones (moo, cluck, squeak, chirp). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805087788, Paperback)

Cows in the pasture, moo, moo, moo. Roosters in the barnyard, cock-a-doodle-doo . . .

It’s another noisy morning on the farm, and all of the animals are where they should be—except Goose. Where is Goose? Young children will enjoy clucking, mucking, mewing, and cooing while they search for Goose on every gorgeously illustrated spread.
The big-book format is perfect for this favorite read-aloud: all the children can join in at once!

All the farm animals are where they should be, clucking and mucking, mewing and cooing, except for the missing goose.
