The author's writing is parallel to Old MacDonald had a farm except she uses different animals. The words create a sound effect like "Hoo" or "Rat-tat" that enforce phonological awareness.
The illustrations are visually representative of a forest community. The colors are earthy and soft.
I recommend this book particularly to kindergarten and first graders. It was a fun book and could easily be sung along too! The back has a glossary of forest guided words. A great book to incorporate when learning about the forest, forest animals, or sound effects and vowels in Language Arts.
