Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/3/2014

    " A cute book that uses lots of animal sounds. Cadence is sometimes strange and I'm a little annoyed by the two visual poop jokes. "

    " My child absolutely loves this book. He had me read it to him every night after I bought it. I'm kind of sick of it but he loves the story and pictures. "

    " My children wanted me to reread it immediately, and now one is reading the book to the other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryanne | 1/25/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia March | 1/17/2014

    " One tiny ladybug who never says a word over hears the plan of two crafty robbers who want to steal a prize cow from her farm. With her help the whole barnyard of animals trick the thieves into getting themselves caught. A really fun read aloud with rhyming words and tons of fun animal noises to make! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Polly | 1/15/2014

    " Adorable! Although if reading it aloud in North America, I think one would have to say "police car" instead of "panda car", because I don't think many kids here know what a panda car is! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 1/9/2014

    " Nominated for NYRA 2012, this story is about noisy farm animals being organized by a quiet ladybug in a plan to stop thieves. There is a mixture of "Click, clack, moo cows that type" atmosphere with "The very busy spider" and "The very quiet cricket". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 1/4/2014

    " So many friends have said that this has been a favourite book in their house. To be honest it hasn't stuck with us in quite the same way, but a witty rhyming tale nevertheless. "

    " This is just a fun story about how the silent ladybug breaks her silence to warn the farm animals of robbers coming. It has the sort of silly hyjinks that will delight preschoolars, with mixed up animal sounds, and colorful pictures. "

    " I would give the story itself three stars, but it's a great read-aloud and the re-readability is high, and the illustrations are adorable, so I went with four. "

    " This is one of my two year old daughter's favourite books. I read it to her almost every night. It's great fun and the repetition in it has been good for her language acquisition too. I think it would work well in an EFL classroom for younger learners. "

    " Funny whodunit in a farmyard. My 4 yr old liked it, but with all the animal sounds I bet it works with much younger as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryanne | 7/24/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/6/2010

    " Very fun as there's a sparkly ladybird on every page. My kids fight over who gets to find it first; we have to take turns pointing it out. And using thick-skulled voices for the burglars is too much fun.

    Ideal for 3-5 year-olds, I think. "
