Moo, Baa, La La La!
Basically it’s a poem of animals and the sounds they make. “A cow says moo, a sheep says baa” until you get to the surprising line “three singing pigs say la la la.” Hilarity ensues. Really!
Like all Boynton books, it’s rhythmic so my son enjoys the narrative, and he can participate in the rea ...more

He picked this out for his dad to read to him and we've been reading "MooBuhLuhLuhLuhLuh" every night since then. We usually let him make the animal noises and at the end ask him what he says (usually a tiger noise).

Boynton's trademark silly animals are the focus in this tale of animal sounds. Animals pictured are cow, sheep, pigs, rhinoceroses, cat, kitten, duck, horse, plus little and big dogs.

they have assed the test as favorites for 2 granddaughters and the first book the older one could "read" to her little sister.
These ridiculous little board books are so popular, I have visions of Boynton dictating them to a lean cabana boy while she sips cocktails and clucks disapprovingly at the inefficient pool skimmer she let Charlotte talk her into buying.
This book makes me giggle and the kids like it.
