Old MacDonald had a farm, but what did that oink-oink pig and honk-honk goose really do? They had all sorts of escapades, as readers will discover in this collection of silly, rhyming poems about farm life. Charley Hoce taps his twenty-two years as a classroom teacher to write verse that is perfectly pitched to young children's (sometimes corny) sense of humor. And he's deliberately woven in language skills that young children need to practice. "Children love puns, homophones, idioms, and anything that turns convention upside down," says Charley. So a sheep goes on the lam, a cow wears a dress that makes her calves look small, a bull literally teeters in a china shop. Old MacDonald's farm has never been so much fun!
