Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop

Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop
by Lisa Shulman
Illustrated by Ashley Wolff

Genre: Picture book

Synopsis: Old MacDonald is busy building something.  One by one, all the animals on the farm come to help too.  All of them except for the babies, who hover at the door, trying to see what it is.  With a rurr rurr, tap tap, chip chip, scritch scratch, squeak squeak, and swish swash, soon the project is done.  What do you think it is?  With fun sound effects and a familiar cast of animals, this twist on the classic nursery song is sure to be a hit with any kid who loves tools or loves to sing.
From the book jacket

Review:  My kids really like books that are set to music and the also really like tools!  This book is right up their alley.  Old MacDonald is a female sheep who is building something and other animals come to help.  With each verse, another animals comes in with a different tool and the sound effects are the noises that a tool would make.  It's a fun song to sing and a nice twist on an old classic song.

Rating: 4 stars
