Dooby Dooby Moo

The author of Dooby Dooby Moo, Doreen Cronin, is no stranger to childrens books. She is the author of other titles such as Duck for President; Giggle, Giggle, Quack; and the Caldecott Honor book Click, Clack, Moo. Lovable farm animals are what Doreen Cronin does best, and in this book, they’re back again, ready to sing and have a good time—with Duck in tow of course!

When the country fair rolls around, everybody knows it’s going to be a ton of fun. Especially since they’re going to have a talent show. And what happens when the first prize winner is announced? They will get a brand new trampoline! Of course, everybody wants a brand new trampoline. So it’s time for some planning. Duck takes charge of the farmyard and soon enough everyone is learning something different. The cows will sing, the pigs will do interpretive dance, and Duck has a few tricks up his feathers as well. But Farmer Brown knows that something is up with his farm animals. They’re going to have to outsmart him if they want to compete in the talent show and win that trampoline!

It’s hard to beat the idea of farm animals wanting a trampoline. From the second that children hear what the animals want, they’ll be rooting for them the entire step of the way. Doreen Cronin’s silly plot and comical writings come together with the charming illustrations of Betsy Lewin. Dooby Dooby Moo is 40 pages of smiles, giggles, feathers, tails, and sheer merriment. Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin have created another hit with fans of the 3 to 7 persuasion, though many parents are sure to be drawn into the fun as well.

Great during the day, just before bed, or at any other time, Dooby Dooby Moo will have kids singing and wishing they too could hop up and down on a trampoline with a ducks and a few cows. Expect to read this book many times and get more requests for stories featuring Duck and all his barnyard pals. This series is one that children will cherish for years.
