 Cock-a-Doodle Oops! cover


Synopsis:
When the rooster is away, who is there to ring in the day? Cock-a-Doodle Oops! is the humorous tale of a community of farm animals who band together to help out a rooster who is badly in need of a vacation. How hard can it be to wake up a sleeping farmer? While the rooster is gone, the pig, cow, sheep, and other farm animals attempt to rouse Farmer McPeeper with "cock-a-doodle SQUEAL," “cock-a-doodle MOO,” and "cock-a-doodle BAAAA," with hilarious results. The irresistible humor in this barnyard comedy builds vocabulary while encouraging children to cock-a-doodle-uh-oh along with the silly farm animals.

Review:
If your child loved Click-Clack-Moo, they will ADORE this new book! The book is aimed at ages 3-9, and it definitely is the correct age group. Miss Grace as an early reader was able to get through most of the book, with some help. She adored how the animals solved the problem (aha, it teaches problem-solving too!), and laughed with uncontrollable glee at the end of the book (shhh, not telling- it's really ironic and funny!). The illustrations are perfect to the story and are adorable! If you have a child that adores farm stories, they will LOVE this book! We highly recommend it for adding to your child's Easter basket!
