Summary
The Little Red Hen gives old MacDonald some pointers on composting - and a legendary farm is born - in this rhyming, rollicking read-aloud.Once upon a time, Old MacDonald didn't have a farm. He just had a yard - a yard he didn't want to mow. But under the direction of the wise (and ecologically sensitive) Little Red Hen, Mac learns to look at the environment in a very different way, and whole new worlds start to bloom with the help of some mud, garbage, horse poop, and worms! Judy Sierra's spirited verse, paired with Matthew Myers's exuberant illustrations, yields a fresh take on a children's classic, complete with raised-bed gardens and an organic farmers' market-making this a perfect story for armchair gardeners and devoted locavores of all sizes.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A sustainability take on the old nursery rhyme, this humorous go-round places the Little Red Hen in the role of consultant to Old MacDonald. Sierra quickly veers from the original situation here, MacDonald only has a suburban yard. And he's sick of mowing it. So he gets a goat, but the goat just grazes. He goes online to get a chicken and ends up with the world's smartest chicken, the Little Red Hen, who tells him he'll never have to mow again if he just follows her instructions. The yard is covered in cardboard, paper, and, dirt and gets extremely muddy, which leads to a neighborhood protest. When the hen and MacDonald bring in manure to build a worm farm, the protests escalate. At last, though, the once-useless plot of grass has been transformed into a local farm, everyone rejoices, and MacDonald has become a true farmer. Myers' acrylic-and-oil illustrations are eye-popping, with wildly exaggerated faces and bodies. A fun twist on an old favorite.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Like his neighbors, this Old MacDonald has a high-maintenance lawn: "MacDonald said, 'I love my yard,/ but mowing grass is mighty hard.' " Enter a remarkable red hen, who is a horticultural expert (her "Resume of Horticultural Fowlishness" includes a stint at Versailles) with a plan for turning the backyard into a low-impact, high-yield organic garden. Old MacDonald's neighbors need some convincing-in fact, they organize a NIMBY protest against the garden's unsightly mud and smelly natural fertilizers ("A LAWN IN EVERY YARD" and CHANGE IS BAD" read protestors' signs). But soon enough, nearly everyone either has the gardening bug or is saying, " 'Mac sure is smart,'/ as they bought fresh food from his garden cart." Sierra (Wild About You!) has written an ingenious parable that's ripped-from-the-headlines (or HGTV), and she has a two-peas-in-a-pod partnership with Myers, whose sculptural pictures and sly comedy add just the right amount of visual extravagance. Close readers will also be rewarded with manure jokes and a new meaning for Old MacDonald's vowel-heavy refrain: "Enjoy It! Everything Is Organic!" Ages 4-8.
