Staff Reviews

The elderly MacDonald couple undertake a construction project--with each construction equipment vehicle/equipment featured in lieu of an animal in the classic "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" tune around which this book is based. With onomatopoeia a plenty in the song and the farm construction ongoing, the farm animal pit crew helps convert the red truck into a monster truck in time for the construction project's results and a big finish! The illustrations are as energetic as the song, making this picture book a winner for all kids who like music, heavy machinery, or both!
