Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-The fifth installment of "Turkey Trouble" finds Farmer Jake's animals practicing their school skills in the barnyard-writing, counting, and reading. Their plan is to attend the first day of school with Max and Millie, the kids on the farm. "Farm Days" is the school's first weekly learning theme and they are certain they will be welcome visitors. But it isn't that easy. They get kicked off the bus. They hitch a ride to school where they are refused entry. Turkey is variously disguised as a backpack, book, soccer ball, and a lunch lady, in an attempt for acceptance, all to no avail. When Turkey dresses as Farmer Jake, the farm animals are finally allowed to stay for their first-and last-day of school. Rendered in cartoony watercolors, the story suffers from awkward puns. The theme of exclusion and nonacceptance is frankly unsettling and unfunny. Some school children and the principal have darker skin tones, but the white characters are the protagonists and have most of the speaking parts. VERDICT This iteration of the series doesn't live up to the charm of the first amusing title, and has a confusing message of rejection and ostracism.-Rita Christensen, Orem P.L., UTα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

“The watercolor-and-pencil illustrations feature quirky characters with wide eyes and expressive features and a relatively diverse class of children. A cute twist on both the farm and school themes.” Kirkus Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Allay Those First School Day Fears
By Trippet on July 26, 2021
I liked this from the first page! The book is an exciting way to introduce children to school and make it Fun rather than scary or nerve wracking. The animals are enthused to attend and disappointed when they're not allowed. The author has the animals touting school's features as exhilarating things to do. This is sure to stir interest in children who aren't feeling the school vibe. Setting their expectations for a positive experience is a large part of making it a positive experience.

This should be read with exuberance and energy. The writing is such that it's an easy task to go over-the-top and emphasize the puns and overall silliness of the book.

The drawings are lovely, but the characters get a little lost amongst the background. The flip side to that is I found myself focusing more on the story.

This is a story not only about going to school, but perseverance, problem-solving, and positive thinking.
