By Karen B Winnick
Published By Boyds Mill Press
Colds are contagious and so are giggles and laughter as "Barn Sneeze" is read. All of the animals in the barn sneeze differently when they have a cold. A cow says
"Moo - Choo" while a mouse says "Squeak - Choo".
Sheep say "Baa - Choo" while of course, "Neigh - Choo" goes the horse. Hens
sneeze with a "Cluck - Choo."
All the animals sneezing gets the hen's egg rolling and rolling until the egg cracks and a chick pops out and declares
"Peep - Choo." All of the commotion wakes up the rooster who does a loud
"Cock - A - Doodle Choo" which wakes up the farmer named Sue from her slumber. She heads to the barn and finds all her animals with head colds. She remedies the situation with tea and the animals all stop sneezing. But colds are contagious, so in the end, Sue says
"Ah - Choo."
Karen Winnick has written a picture book with rhyming text and humorous illustrations. Young readers and listeners will enjoy the familiar animal sounds and can participate throughout the creative story line when a different animal is introduced. Animal identification will appeal to even the youngest audiences. Once you have experienced a "Barn Sneeze" having a case of the sneezes will not seem so terrible.
