Farmyard Beat: Read & Listen Edition
Such a fun musical read! You just can't read it--you must sing it! Oct 20, Michelle rated it really liked it. The cover art for this book is friendly and inviting and would definitely appeal to preschoolers who will identify with the theme of not wanting to go to sleep. The text itself is easy to read in white against the dark background and offers a nice repetitive beat that lends itself well to chanting or singing. Animal sounds are italicized which gives a nice visual clue that lets readers know when to chime in. Even the end papers are fun, featuring a repeating pattern of animals from the story at the beginning of the book and a double-page image of a rooster crowing to welcome the rising sun at the end.
Farmyard Beat is a great choice for sharing with preschool children because it offers lots of great opportunities for participation and interaction. When sharing this book with preschoolers I would have them echo the italicized words back to me, I would have them keep the beat with rhythm sticks or use their own hands to clap or tap the rhythm out as we shared the story.
Illustrated by Marc Brown. Rhythm, rhyme, and repetition are well used throughout the text making this book a good choice for reading aloud in small or large groups and to encourage interactive activities like clapping Craig, Lindsey. Rhythm, rhyme, and repetition are well used throughout the text making this book a good choice for reading aloud in small or large groups and to encourage interactive activities like clapping or chanting of the refrain. Full page spreads are in a paper collage style.
The composition of illustrations is energetic and indicative of dancing motion of characters.
The book could also be valuable for discussing types of animals and the sounds they make. While the farmyard animals are finally able to fall asleep, the story might not be a good choice for signaling bedtime because of the upbeat tempo which invites spirited chanting and dancing. A good choice for story-time especially in a lively group setting.
