Week 3:
Dudley the rooster was the best rooster around. His crows would carry for miles around, delightfully greeting his friend Sol the sun every morning. Dudley was the favorite animal of all the animals in the barnyard. All the animals thought Dudley's morning crows held magical powers that make the sun rise, except for Gunther the goose.

Another new Bill Peet in my library. I don't think I had read this one before. Very fun! Of course the illustrations of the barnyard animals are the best! Does anyone draw better animals than Bill Peet?

Pete's picture books are like picture novels. Of all the books I have read of his, this is right at the top.

The story of the witch was good, as was the story of the trolls. I like witches and trolls. The story of the sea monster was AWESOME. And then there is this lowly story of a rooster. This awesome lowly story of a rooster.

It's not quite at the tippy top of my picture book list. I must admit though, there is a great message about persevering and against bullying.

Recommend.

Oh, Dudley is such a lovable and cute little rooster. Did you know he is the reason the sun comes up every morning? Longer text=experienced listeners (maybe kindergarten and up unless your preschoolers have listened to lots of stories)

Bill Peet (3) - This book could be used to teach that everyone plays a part in making the classroom work. There shouldn't be any bullying. Everyone has something that they do best!

This book I have read so many times. I also know it's probably my mom's favorite Bill Peet book.

A little bit of magic, but that's ok. Love the expressions on the animals' faces.
