This is a good book to help students to work on their prediction skills. There is alot that goes in the book and there is alot of repitition that also can be taught to students using this book also. Another awesome thing about this book is that it is bilingual. This is great for spanish speaking students so they also see a little part of them represented in books.
Twist on the cumulative story format, everytime the farmer says his to do list he twists it up. He goes from milking the cow, to mowing the cow, to climbing the cow, to fixing the cow. Also has farm animal sounds.Very humorous. There's a very textural element to the cartoonish-type illustrations, and a repeated patchwork quilt theme.
