Alienor ✘ French Frowner ✘ (of badger and SNAKE)

My 10 years old (French) students when they realized that your cockerels crowed, "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" (and not cocorico) :


TEACHER MIND = LAUGHS (but tries to explain that no, the English cockerels don't really make a different sound) (success unsure)

Rooster is a little confused and keeps cocking up his crow. Fortunately, his weird crowing still wakes up the animals when FOX stops by. Quick read, funny story line. Good for toddlers.

Read Aloud
I choose Cock-A-Moo-Moo by Juliet Dalass-Conte to read aloud to my group because it had so many funny voices you could use while reading and it had repeative lines throughout the book, making it easy to show the pictures while reading. This book is about a rooster that has forgotten how to crow and so he makes all the other animal sounds but his own. I thought that the concept was also funny and short therefore keeping the audiences attention and making them laugh at all the funny nois

This is very much like THIS LITTLE CHICK by John Lawrence -- so much so that you'll have to decide ahead of time which of the two to share in story time, OR hold them both up and let the children choose!

Rooster has forgotten how to crow and the animals correct him with each new try with, "That's not right!--only ____ go ____". When a fox comes along in the night it becomes most urgent that the rooster gets it right!

Poor rooster has forgotten the right way to crow! After trying various sounds, he gets really discouraged. But when a fox sneaks into the hen house, how can rooster help?

Super fun book! The kids love to laugh at the rooster and identify the right sound with the correct animal, instead of a rooster! Great opportunity to use various voices while reading, on top of the animal sounds! Love this book and it's a winner every time!
A young rooster has forgotten how to crow. He travels around to different animals trying out their sounds. Nothing sounds quite right. He eventually gives up and swears he's never going to try to crow again. But then there's a rustle in the night. What could it be? A fox! Young Rooster uses every mixed-up crow he can think of to wake everyone up. It works! He saves the day!

Cute story--I feel like i've read several stories that are basically the same idea. Kinders/Preschool will enjoy. Simple and short. Not to many words. Would be a good sequencing story.

Poor rooster can't remember how to crow. He tries a number of variations, but it's a late night attack by the fox on the henhouse that helps set him straight again. Great read aloud for PreK-2.

Awesome book for storytime. The kids were engaged right from the start and quick to correct my Cock-a-Moo-Moo to cock-a-doodle-doo.

Very simple picture book. Bright pictures and brief story make it a good choice for baby and toddler storytimes.

While this story has been replicated, this version pleases the audience with bright illustrations and simple yet humorous text. Rooster gains redemption resulting in a nice wrap-up to the story.

A very colorful book and large enough to use for Storytime. (You can have lots of fun with the sound effects!)
