A moving narrative that highlights the circle of life in understandable, free-market terms while placing a sunnier patina on the darker side of the meat and poultry industry.

I read this like the Lady GaGa refrain. It fits perfectly.

My wife and I consider Moo, Baa, La La La to be our daughter Charlotte's first favourite book. There was a point in time, not so long ago, when the only sounds that would calm her down in the evening (or on a bad car ride, or after a fall, or any other general sookfest) were my wife or I reciting this book. Now that Charlotte's a little bit older (15 months at the time of this writing) she still loves the book, and has taken to finishing the sentences as we read along (or recite from memory).

I read this book aloud several times a day to babies and toddlers! I have it memorized; I can grunt this animal noise poem on command. And I'm getting better giving classes (yes classes?!) to drooling, curious babes, some who can't even sit up on their own. You'd be amazed how under 1 year olds can and will sit in a circle and pay attention and interact. We certainly have to keep busy on the 10 1/2 hour nursery shift.

My son showed absolutely no interest in Sandra Boynton books until about a month ago.

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).

Unfortunately now, all of the Sandra Boynton books we own are "MooBuhLuhLuhLuhLuh" so any time we pull out Tickle Time or Doggies he thinks it's his favorite. Pretty cool that he recognizes the artw

My son absolutely loves this book. He is 1.5 years and can make the sounds of most of the animals. When he is looking for this book he will keep saying "la la la" until he finds it. One of my all time favourite Boynton books!
Alicia
A cow says moo, a sheep says baa, three singing pigs say la la la... oh god I think I can recite this book from memory. It is cute though for a toddler and not so mind numbing as books for this age tend to be,

This is one of Sandra Boynton's shorter stories, but it's still really cute. I like that she has a bit of a sense of humor and my daughter always smiles at the end when the author asks "What do you say?" (as in what noise does a baby make).

We love Sandra Boynton and this was no exception. Adorable illustrations paired along side a cute story about animals, it's a big favorite for all my kids, but especially my 3 yr old twins. We also love books that rhyme, so that was an added plus for us. Great book.

If Everly tries to tell me that singing pigs say "Oink" instead of "La la la" we're going to have a serious talk.

Moo, Baa, la la la! by Sandra Baynton is a silly story teaching about sounds. found in a kindergarten classroom

Boynton is a master of serious silliness. This adorable little board book is a favorite "again! again!" book to read with little ones.

This is a wonderful picture book filled with animals and sounds the reader makes out loud when reading to a child. There is a twist in the beginning when the author tells us that pigs sing la la la instead of saying oink! The story goes through quite a few different animals which make their individual noises and then the animals ask the reader what kind of sound they make. Extremely interactive and a wonderful read-aloud!

This book is listed on the 100 top ‘Read Alouds’ I was stunned to find my grandson favorite board book as #75! The bloggers associated with site in my opinion are right on the mark. My 14-month-old grandson will listen to "Moo Baa LaLaLa" aloud to him over over and by his attention and body language I can infer the book brings him pleasure. This is a babies board book that when read comes out more like a song.

This is a great read-aloud for babies-three-year-olds. The silly text, clear illustrations, and Sandra Boynton's singular wit come together to create a great bit of fun.
