Children love books about animals and envisioning them saying different things. Dave Reisman does just that in his book Cows Can't Quack.. but they can Moo. Repetitive in the structure, again something young kids love and can easily memorize to 'read' to Mom and Dad.
My 4 year old grabs the book after I read it and says "This is the best book!" Somehow Dave was able to get in the mind of a 4 year old, find what makes them laugh, and make a funny animal book about it. I struggled with a hippo braying and rabbits cooing.. but then again I am a logical adult who has had farm animals and somehow don't have the humor of a 4 year old!. Dave didn't write it for adults anyway!
Funny, comic like illustrations by Jason A. Maas adds character and humor to the text. Animals in unique positions, making goofy faces.. just what small tykes love!
My 4 year old has yet to do this with any other book I have reviewed. So I am letting him be the expert on this one. It is the Best book!!
I seriously think every home with small children needs a copy and you should suggest to your libraries to have one for story time!!
