9780060559991: Bumpety Bump!

Bumpety, bumpety, bumpety, bump! When Pat Hutchins introduces a boy, his grandfather, a bright blue wheelbarrow, a little red hen, and a garden full of fresh fruits and vegetables you can bet the harvest on this: you are about to open a first–rate picture book with a beginning, middle, and end. It also goes without saying that it has a great sense of rhythm, repetition, affection, and surprise; and a plot and sense of fun that is perfect for preschoolers. Bumpety, bumpety, bumpety, bump!

About the Author:

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.

From Booklist:

PreS-K. In this offering that reads with the rhythm and bounce of a nursery rhyme, a boy helps his grandfather collect fruits and vegetables from the garden: "In Grandpa's wheelbarrow, I bump up and down--bumpety bumpety bump." A red hen follows the pair, and after loading the wagon with produce, grandfather and grandson reverse course and follow the hen back to the shed, where they find a new egg. The story is slight, and those reading aloud may stumble over an occasional offbeat or missed rhyme. Still, the word repetition will encourage spirited chanting along, and young children will find plenty of familiar foods to look at and point to in the cheerful paintings of orchards and garden rows, presented in cross sections that show views both above- and belowground. This isn't a necessary purchase, but the warm camaraderie between grandparent and child makes the story a good choice for sharing among generations, and teachers may want to include the root-to-fruit views in preschool and kindergarten units about growing things.
