A Kid of Their Own

Rate this book
Clyde has always taken his role of Rooster at Sunrise Farm very seriously, but when Fran the goat and her hyperactive kid, Rowdy, join the other animals, Clyde's feathers are ruffled by all the attention that Rowdy is getting, and soon he is crowing at all hours just to wake up the kid--until all the animals tell him that they have had enough of his grandstanding.

There's a new baby goat on the farm, and now Clyde the rooster needs to be careful with his good-morning cock-a-doodle-doos so as not to wake Rowdy. Clyde feels a bit disgruntled. The wakeup call is something all the other animals need to get going in the morning. What is Clyde to do?

He, of course, comes up with a perfect solution and everyone is happy again in this gentle lovely farm story, as the story winds down with the announcement of the arrival of a new baby for the human farmers, too.

The delight of the story is in the witty and pun-filled dialogue between the animals. Don't miss it.

A story of acceptance, jealousy and saying you are sorry. This tale takes place in a barnyard where rooster is praised for what he does, but when that is threatened, what will he do to keep the spotlight? A story full of lessons and worth a read!

I wanted to like this more than I actually did. The illustrations are cute, and there's some adorable LGBTQ+ representation. But the puns are WAY over the top and it just clunky in spots. Intent is great; execution needs improvement.

This is the second book set on the farm by Lambert. The puns are worse than before, the story story. The ending says book three to come!

A new kid book. In this story, the new kid is a baby goat and the one adjusting is a rooster. In this follow up book to A Crow of His Own, readers see the rooster's feelings of jealousy and displacement. He attempts to crow even louder every morning to keep the attention. He then finds a solution to keep crowing and still let the baby sleep. Charming artwork capture the scenes on Sunrise Farm.

A good story of adjusting to a new "kid", more so amongst the farm animals and the end brought a surprise with the two Dads.

Clyde the Rooster is now the voice of the barnyard. The LOUD voice of the barnyard. But, when the farmers introduce the new goat and her kid, Clyde feels jealous by the attention they are getting. Especially Roberta's attention. So, he ramps up his morning crow! But, it wakes up the baby and even Roberta takes Clyde to task, but this only makes Clyde worse!

I loved the dialogue between the animals - so much fun! The illustrations are engaging, lots more story in the pictures. A delightful follow up of "A Crow of His Own."

This is a lovely story about change being hard and our hero not responding well to it. There's a new kid in town (literally). A baby goat is not what Clyde the rooster wants though. Especially when other farm animals start to shush him.

Good for older sibling/new baby. Families that like farm stories. Or any gentle read.

Not that it is a huge lot of quiltbag but the farmers at the end appear to be two men who just adopted a baby and I appreciate the representation there.

The animals on the farm are waiting for the farmer's wife to bring home her child after they watch over the animal babies on the farm. And Clyde the rooster crows for all the new babies on the farm but becomes a problem when he wakes all the new animals. After reading Megan's book about how to read a picture book to children this book was fun to explore and read aloud with lots of attention to the details and the illustrations and end pages.

Clyde the rooster is upset that the new kid (a baby goat) on the farm is hogging his attention. The story of the animals parallels a subtle background story of two farmers preparing to bring home their own adopted kid. A delightful read with charming illustrations.

I don’t like puns. This book is filled with them. The only part of this book I enjoyed was the two male farmers adopting a baby. 🌈

2.5 not really my cup of tea. I normally like puns but these flew right over my kids’ heads. The story was just slow and blah.

Clyde’s beak is out of joint when he’s upstaged by a new addition to the farming family. Funny, delightful, and a wonderful ending. Love the pun and word play humor.
