Old MacDonald's Things That Go

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

In this rendition of Old MacDonald Had a Farm, the familiar refrain (E-I-E-I-O) is replaced with He loved things that go! Instead of showcasing farm animals, the turn of each oversize page reveals a different type of vehicle. Brightly colored digital illustrations in a flat cartoon style show MacDonald and a fairly sizable assortment of animals gleefully zipping around a pleasant countryside of rolling hills. Of the 10 types of vehicles that MacDonald loves, most are intended for work (tractors, combine harvester, digger) or transportation (bike, truck, bus, train, plane, boat), although MacDonald seems to use them largely for pleasure outings. A firetruck is pressed into service to put out a fire in the henhouse, but even that seems choreographed like a song-and-dance number not entirely inappropriate, considering this is based on a song. Children familiar with the traditional version, especially those into big shiny vehicles, might just go for the wild enthusiasm MacDonald and his animals show for things that go.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2017 Booklist

Old MacDonald's Things That Go

Kirkus Reviews


Copyright (c) Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.

Turns out there's more than a moo-moo here and a moo-moo there on Old MacDonald's farm."Old MacDonald had a farm. / He loved things that go!" In fact, his garage, boathouse, and hangar (yes) seem to have more occupants than his barn. "And on that farm / he had a bike. / He loved things that go! / With a ding-ding here / and a ding-ding there. / Here a ding, there a ding, / everywhere a ding-ding." Each vehicle gets its own onomatopoeic stanza. The car "vrooms." The tractor "chugs." And the train "choo-choos." In each double-page spread, Old MacDonald and his gleeful animals make use of a different vehicle, leading up to a tongue-twister-y four-page summation at the close. Clarke's expansion of the ode to noisy farm beasts that every 2-year-old can sing will have listeners joining in by the second stanza. Young machinery mavens won't notice the syllabic aerobics needed to shoehorn "combine harvester" (it goes "whir") and "fire truck" into the rhyme, it'll just add a giggle or two. Blanco's digitally created illustrations of joyous white farmer and flock have a bright, sunny retro look that is as inviting and catchy as Clarke's verse. A great singalong that proves that Old MacDonald still has new tricks. (Picture book. 2-8) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.

Publishers Weekly Review

Old MacDonald's Things That Go

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Clarke (Who Woke the Baby?) gives Old MacDonald an insatiable need for speed in this snappy vehicular riff on a classic nursery song. Instead of animal noises and choruses of "E-I-E-I-O," she deploys an array of dings, vrooms, and zooms as the farmer takes to the roads, rivers, and sky: "And on that farm he had a plane./ He loved things that go!" Blanco's (Cinderella's Stepsister and the Big Bad Wolf) cheerful digital illustrations lend a retro mid-20th-century look to the pages, highlighting 1950s-era trucks, convertibles, boats, and farm equipment. A cast of farm animals keeps the story moving, riding along with Old MacDonald in their own vehicles or cheering him on from the sidelines as the farmer pilots a tractor ("with a chug-chug here"), boat ("with a splash-splash there"), train ("everywhere a choo-choo"), and other noisy contraptions. Clarke's adapted stanzas are sure to draw giggles in several places ("And on that farm/ he had a combine harvester"), and Blanco's detail-crammed scenes will have readers poring over the pages.

Old MacDonald's Things That Go

School Library Journal

PreS-In this mash-up of "Old MacDonald" and transportation vehicles, a new storytime song is born. The oversize pages of this picture book are built for holding wide open as readers' arms pan the book's full-bleed spreads around a semicircular crowd to show off the slightly quirky and retro illustrations in this charming title. Most riffs on popular childhood songs have a forced sound to them, but right from the first page, Clarke hooks listeners into following the well-known tune as she introduces a wide range of vehicles, complete with their own sound effects. First comes the bike, with the "ding-ding" of a handle bar bell. It is followed by a truck, a tractor, a combine harvester (the only vehicle that may present those reading the text with a slight challenge), a bus, a boat, a digger, and a fire truck. Not to be outdone, a train and a plane are also included, with the shiny red bike on the final refrain of "Old MacDonald had a farm/He loved things that go!" satisfyingly closing out the tale. Although the illustrations were created digitally, they have the appearance of hand-drawn images, complete with texture and cross-hatching detailing in the sprawling farmland backgrounds. The familiar cast of farm animals are here, too, with plenty of expression and character, offering young readers ample opportunities to giggle as they look for their favorite animal with each page turn. VERDICT Purchase for both circulating and storytime collections so a copy is always at the ready for class visits, read-alouds, and home reading. A fun take on a classic rhyme.-Lisa Kropp, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
