“Once there was a duck who had the bad luck to live with a lazy old farmer.” The farmer stays in bed all day while the duck does all the chores! Eventually, the animals tire of this and hold a meeting. Early the next morning, they kick the farmer off the farm and from then on they care for the farm themselves. I think children will respond with satisfaction to the restoration of justice, but it delights me as a hilarious mash-up of “Shaun the Sheep”, the British stop-motion children’s animation, and Animal Farm.… (mais)

Gift from Pam W.

Little Bear and Big Bear do everything together, from chores to playing, until it's time to go home to their cozy cave home.

Best rhyme book ever. When the farmer takes off his clothes and jumps in the pond with the animals, it's uproar in the audience (3-4 year olds - EDIT: the toddlers over two loved it as well, they just enjoyed the general mayhem and the beautiful illustrated animals more than the twist). Sooo classy. Rhymes are refined and perfectly age appropriate at the same time. Good for learning animals and clothes, too...

EDIT/2: I realised just now that Waddell is also the author of another favourite of mine (and the children's): Owl Babies!
This guy is on the way to becoming one of my favourite people :D
