“Lucky are the kids in Ms. MacDonald’s kindergarten, for she makes learning the joyous experience it can and should be. The rhythm and rhyme of the nursery song relate a class visit to a farm and the follow-up classroom activities that culminate in a performance for family members. The children dance and sing, plan and measure, create and clean up—whole language in a nutshell. As always Ormerod’s drawings capture the personalities and animated exuberance of her characters; 24 multicultural munchkins do their kindergarten thing. . . . A winner!”—School Library Journal

Jan Ormerod is the acclaimed illustrator of more than 50 books for children. She lives in England.From Kirkus Reviews:
Ms. MacDonald, fashionable in ankle boots and hoop earrings, takes her class of two dozen appealingly diverse children ``down to the farm, E-I-E-I-O.'' Back in the classroom they parade around imitating the farm animals, improvising costumes, and painting scenery, then tidy up and take a nap. Every activity becomes embedded in cumulative verse (``Here a lid, there a wipe, everybody wash hands''), which slows things down at times. But the pace quickens when the children put on a performance for parents, an exuberant song and dance parade that's warmly and amusingly detailed. The original song wins for simple, raucous fun; this version scores for its rendering of energetic children making an eye-filling hubbub.
