Read full description of the books:
Luke and I both agreed on the rating for this one - it was a 5-star read aloud. But ONLY if you read the characters in different animated voices. The chicken is Spanish (Icaramba!), the duck is French (Sacre bleu!) and the goose is American (Great Balls of Fire!)....
Even my husband laughed out loud when I was reading it out loud... that alone is worth a 5 star rating.....
Another reason I'm giving this a 5 star is because it has helped to restore my son's interest in picture books. He's all of 5 years old - but fancies himself a scientist and has lately decided that he only wants to read more mature science non-fiction titles. According to him, picture books are for babies... despite me telling him that a great book is a great book EVEN if its a picture book. I told him that I'm a HUGE fan of children's picture books and that some of my very favorite books in the world are picture books. He wasn't convinced, despite the fact that we've read some really,really good picture books lately (some that he said he loved!). I was almost in despair... but then we read this one - and I believe his faith in picture books has been restored. PHEW!! Big sigh of relief. And for this reason, if I could give this book a 6th star, I would.
Plus it was just too darn cute.

Read information about the authorCatherine Friend had what she calls a "boring" childhood, but she says that boring was just fine -- because it gave her more time to read. She read so much her parents had to set a "no-reading-at-the dinner-table" rule. She was slightly shy as a child, but enjoyed playing Beauty Parlor with her sister, taking family trips, and watching STAR TREK and TIME TUNNEL.
She studied Economics, but because of her love for books and stories, she eventually found herself drawn to writing. Since then, the author has written six children's books, including THE PERFECT NEST, a hilarious read-aloud illustrated by John Manders; and two books in Candlewick’s Brand New Readers series. She is also the author of the acclaimed adult memoir, HIT BY A FARM: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BARN. When it comes to her writing, Catherine Friend likes to try new things and seek new challenges -- but she always likes to write stories that make her laugh.
Catherine Friend lives on a small farm in southeastern Minnesota -- which inspired both THE PERFECT NEST and HIT BY A FARM. There, she raises sheep, goats, and llamas, and has an energetic border collie named Robin.
