Cows in the Kitchen by June Crebbin

Ill. by Katherine McEwen. Walker Books, 2010. ISBN 9781406326321.
(Ages 1+) Highly recommended for under fives. Farm yard animals cause havoc in the farm house and have a great time waking up Farmer Tom while he snoozes in the haystack and then again in his armchair.
The story has a singsong quality and is best read aloud with all the animal noise effects. The illustrations are humorous with a lot of detail and one cheeky little mouse hidden on each page to find. Children who love animals will love this book and the mischief the farmyard animals get up to.
