Description: In Cock-a-Doodle-Doo! Barnyard Hullabaloo bright images of animals on a farm are accompanied with rhyming text and descriptions of the actions being performed by each animal. Readers are invited to “gooble gobble” with a turkey or “skip skip” with a sheep.
Uses: Librarians, teachers, and other adults can use Andreae’s Cock-a-Doodle-Doo! Barnyard Hullabaloo in a storytime programs for elementary readers. The rhyming text will automatically engage readers and listeners, and librarians can get children moving by encouraging them to mimic the movement of the particular animal after each page is read. The book can also be used to teach readers about different types of animals, and to teach simple movement concepts to children within the context of a storytime based on animals, farm animals, or any related topic.
