This book has a lot of sensory detail, expression and voice. A great book to be used for mentor text. ( )
  tlj033 | Dec 7, 2015 |
This is such a great book for writing, for writers to include what they're thinking and feeling. As well as a great book for expression and looking at punctuation and expression of the characters and how they act or feel.

39 months - reading this the first time I wasn't that into it... Just another silly farm animal book but then the kids park their bikes and the look on the animals faces made me crack a smile. Kids of course like this one for the colorful illustrations and silliness. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439050235, Hardcover)

When Duck gets the zany idea to ride a bike one day, each animal on the farm has a reaction. "M-o-o-o," says Cow. But what she's really thinking is, "A duck on a bike? That's the silliest thing I've ever seen!" Pig and Pig say "Oink," thinking all the while, "Duck is such a show-off!" But it's not until a crew of kids shows up and leaves their bikes lying about that the true feelings of all the animals come to light, and for one brief, glorious moment, the farm is a mad, mad world of two-wheeling road hogs (and chickens and horses and goats). David Shannon, the creator of Caldecott Honor Book, No, David!, fills the pages of this barnyard romp with sun-soaked color, charming animals, and unusual perspectives. We see Cat, for example, looming belly-first in the foreground, with Duck merrily pedaling away in the distance. The story itself is nothing to write home about--No, David! is far snappier and more original--but younger kids may well enjoy the repetitive crescendo and the goofy finale. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
