The parents' guide to what's in this book.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dooby Dooby Moo is a rollicking picture book from the creators of the Caldecott Honor Book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. Here, the barnyard animals are busy rehearsing in hopes of winning the state fair talent show, and Farmer Brown wonders what they're up to.

What's the Story?
When Duck learns that there's a trampoline available as first prize in the state fair talent show, he's determined to bring that trophy home. Late-night rehearsals with the cows, sheep, and pigs flummox Farmer Brown, who can't figure out what's going on.
Is It Any Good?
DOOBY DOOBY MOO's as fun for grown-ups to read as it is for kids to listen to. Especially for parents who're willing to let their inner performer come out and sing along with the cows and sheep. The energetic and expressive illustrations lend loads of personality to the animals and the confused farmer. The type -- big and bold -- is well-suited to the story and the animal's voices are scrawled in a casual, scratchy print, making it easy to figure out when they start talking.
Funny footnotes might go over the kids' heads but will have adults chuckling. And the whole family's sure to root for Duck and his friends when the time comes to take the stage before the panel of judges (including one extra-discerning cat).
