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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
