Strange addition to the Elick Clack books
Reviewed in the United States on August 22, 2019
This book seems a bit strange to me. The farmer and his animals are invited to visit the school. All the various animals are rowdy upon hearing the news, except for duck who is mediating and is very calm already. The animals learn to be calm and more controlled, but when they arrive at the school and the bell rings for recess, the kids are all rowdy so the animals join them! The always calm duck is seen sitting at the principal's desk, and that is the end of the book (sorry for the Spoiler alert!). I find that a strange message, which only principals would enjoy. Making noises like all the animals is fun, but the message still strikes me as odd. I will donate my copy to the school library instead of adding it to my regulars to read to my Kindergarten class.
