Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

In this cheerful bedtime book, the familiar barnyard friends make their familiar animal sounds (Quack! Croak! Moo! Cluck!, etc.) and wait out a nighttime storm by relying on one another. The story works on two levels, both as an exciting story of friends gathering together during a crisis and as a soothing rhythmic bedtime motif as Toad and Blue say goodnight to each friend, one by one in the final part. That ending section has the same soothing, sleep-inducing cadence of Goodnight Moon: "Good night, Pig. Here's your pen."/ Good night, Duck."/ Good night, Hen." Works every time!

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
