Review: Old MacDonald's Things That Go

Meet Old MacDonald. His farm doesn’t have things that go moo, neigh, baa or woof. Instead he’s surrounded by sounds like beep, zoom, chugga-chugga and rattle-swish.

If you have a child who prefers vehicles over farm animals, Old MacDonald’s Things That Go is the perfect solution. The focus in this version of the classic Old MacDonald nursery rhyme is all the vehicles on and around Old MacDonald’s Farm - a bike, car, combine harvester, plane, bus, tractor and more.

Featuring the classic rhyme and repetition of various sounds, Old MacDonald’s Things That Go is fun to read aloud, especially as the number of sounds build and the verses become longer and longer.

Appealing illustrations add to the fun of the story, with a wonderful collection of farm animals included riding the various vehicles. The slightly larger format of the book and sing-along story means that Old MacDonald’s Things That Go is ideal for preschool or play group story time.
