Children’s Hour: Cock A Moo Moo

Children’s Hour is a feature posted every Thursday here at Lucybird’s Book Blog. Children’s Hour is my time for reviewing children’s picture books. In my job in a nursery I encounter lots of children’s books, and these are the books I use for Children’s Hour.

You can find links to past Children’s Hour posts here.

I’d love to hear everybody’s experiences of the books I review too, and feel free to post me a link to your own reviews, I’d love to make this a bit interactive.

The image (if you were wondering) is taken from Shirley’s Hughes’ Alfie and Annie-Rose books which I loved as a child.

Cock A Moo Moo  is all about cockerel. Poor cockerel has forgotten how to crow. He tries his best but he just can’t get it write, borrowing from other farmyard  animals

“Cock a Moo Moo” “Cock a Quack Quack” “Cock a Baa Baa”.

And the other animal laugh at poor cockerel. It a funny book, with children and adults alike laughing. The colours of the pictures are beautiful and bright. The simple repetitive wording make it quite easy for the kids to join in, and to guess what will happen next, but there is a twist at the end of the story which makes it more interesting.
