Review: Old MacDonald Had a Farm

You know how the song goes, but you must see this Australian version!

Beautifully illustrated by Mandy Foot, this age-old song is brought to life with vibrant colours and animals that are almost bounding off the page to come and play.

As well as the usual assortment of farm animals - pigs and cows and the like - there are some Aussie additions: kangaroos, emus and cockatoos among them, making this a unique and fun insight into life on a farm in our great land.

This is a fun story that kids will want to be sung with them again and again (and I promise that's a good thing in the case of this book; parents won't be bored!).
