Animals play a game of telephone and get all mixed up. Fun read-aloud!

Do you remember playing the telephone game when you were a kid? You know the one where someone whispers a message to one person and it gets passed around the circle with unintentional alterations? That's what Oink-a-Doodle-Moo by Jef Czekaj is all about. Pig starts the whole process by telling the rooster a secret which is very piggy. He just whispers "Oink" and then says "pass it on." With each new farm animal that hears the secret it morphs to combine the previous sounds. By the time the dog gets it the message it's pretty long... "Hee-haw-oink-baa-quack-caw-ribbit-hiss-neigh-meow-moo-hoo-squeak." Dog panics and fails to pass the message on. But that's OK because pig can start the whole shebang all over again!
With brightly colored pictures filled with clever little details, fun sound effects and the growing silliness of the simple message this book holds great appeal for kids. It's reminiscent of the stories with a sneeze carrying farm animal's voices where they shouldn't be but with its own unique take on the craziness.

Sometime all the fun is in trying to say things out loud. Go on, pass it on.
