While Farmer Dougal is still asleep one morning, Sheep and his friends find the perfect opportunity to have fun on the farm. Climbing aboard a tractor, Sheep tells Cat, “This is the sound the tractor makes when you turn the engine on . . . BA-A-A-A-A-A.” Cat contributes the sound when the tractor “starts to wiggle and jiggle . . . PURRRRR.” Progressively, other animals join in, but after Farmer Dougal awakes, it’s scatter time, leaving all quiet on the farm—for now. With simple, sprightly, repetitive text, this amusing story invites lively, participatory read-alouds. The cheerful color illustrations incorporate playful fonts and depict the expressive animals in humorously contrasting scenes, first piled together on the tractor and then oh-so-innocently grazing under the suspicious farmer’s watchful eye. Their vocal group game makes a dramatic fun denouement. This festive, charming tale conveys how imaginative friends set playtime in motion. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Shelle Rosenfeld
