Where is it?
Summary
They can stand in line (sort of), use indoor voices (perhaps), and are capable of sharing (rumor has it), so the Click Clack critters are ready for school...but is school ready for them? A charming addition to the award-winning Click, Clack series from the New York Times bestselling and Caldecott winning team who brought you Click, Clack, Moo and Click, Clack, Surprise! <br> <br> Farmer Brown has been invited to be a guest at the elementary school's Farm Day! The animals excitedly practice their best classroom behavior: standing quietly in line, using their inside voices, and learning how to share. But then they find out that farm animals aren't actually allowed in school (who knew they were considered a health code violation?!). Rules are rules, so Farmer Brown goes to school solo--or so he thinks...for while our favorite barnyard bunch don't get high marks in rules, they do excel in disguise.

  School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Farmer Brown and his barnyard companions are back in the latest addition to the much-loved series. This time around, Farmer Brown and the animals are invited to Farm Day Lunch at Dinkelmeyer Elementary School. Farmer Brown can't wait, and sets off to prepare the cows, chickens, and pigs, all of whom are excited because they've never been to school. Farmer Brown, however, makes sure they all know that school is very quiet, serious, and calm, and that there is to be no stomping, clomping, or mooing; no snapping, clapping, or clucking; and no hooting, hollering, or oinking. To Duck, whom he finds meditating, Farmer Brown admonishes, "'And try not to be so Duck-y.'" On the day of their visit, everyone piles silently into Farmer Brown's truck and waits quietly in the school yard upon arriving. When the bell rings for recess, the children spill onto the playground in a riot of sound and activity, and the animals all join in the fun-except for the mice, who "read graphic novels in the shade." As in previous entries in the series, Cronin's simple text and repeated refrains invite readers to participate in the story, and Lewin's watercolor illustrations are as expressive and amusing as ever. VERDICT A breezy back-to-school offering, this title will be welcome where other books in the series are popular.-Lauren Strohecker, McKinley Elementary School, Elkins Park, PA © Copyright 2018.
