E-I-E-I-O How Old MacDonald Got His Farm (with a Little Help From a Hen)
author: Judy Sierra
illustrator: Matt Myers
Once upon a time, Old MacDonald didnít have a farm. He just had a yard ó a yard he didnít want to mow. But under the direction of the wise (and ecologically sensitive) Little Red Hen, Mac learns to look at the environment in a very different way, and whole new worlds start to bloom with the help of some mud, garbage, horse poop, and worms! Judy Sierraís spirited verse, paired with Matthew Myersís exuberant illustrations, yields a fresh take on a childrenís classic, complete with raised-bed gardens and an organic farmersí marketómaking this a perfect story for armchair gardeners and devoted locavores of all sizes.
The Little Red Hen gives old MacDonald some pointers on composting ó and a legendary farm is born ó in this rhyming, rollicking read-aloud.
