Review
  • Preschool-Grade 2 Young Jo MacDonald hikes through the trees with her grandfather, Old MacDonald. Each double-page spread includes a rhyming verse introducing a new woodland animal, an associated sound, and the familiar refrain “E – I – E – I – O.” The appealing illustrations have clean lines and watercolor washes in soft, harmonious tones. Apparently aimed at adults and older children, an appended section suggests related activities and offers information on specific plants and the nine featured animals (woodpecker, gray squirrel, wild turkey, chipmunk, rat snake, box turtle, skunk, moth, and great horned owl). The third Jo MacDonald book offers a sing-along opportunity and glimpses of forest life. -- Phelan, Carolyn (Reviewed 09-15-2013) (Booklist, vol 110, number 2)
  • PreS-Gr 2 — In this third Jo MacDonald book, eco-friendly partners Quattlebaum and Bryant encourage a sing-along for this woodlands exploration. Secretly followed by a squirrel, Old MacDonald and his granddaughter sight a woodpecker, turkey, chipmunk, snake, turtle, skunk, moth, and owl before heading home. Bryant's watercolors balance whimsy with studied detail. Closing pages provide a paragraph of facts on each creature, in addition to eight flora from the preceding pictures. There are also suggested extension activities and details about trees in general. Quattlebaum's varied animal sounds entertain and Bryant's softly hued spreads keep the hike merry.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA --Gay Lynn Van Vleck (Reviewed September 1, 2013) (School Library Journal, vol 59, issue 9, p178)
