“Uh-Oh!” Said the Crow by Joanne Oppenheim takes a different spin on the typical barnyard story when the animals hear a loud sound. Each animal has a different response to what they are hearing that corresponds to their own sounds. In the end the animals find that apples from the tree by the barn are hitting the roof, and they are relieved that, instead of being afraid, they can now enjoy this tasty treat.
Pros: A fun review of animal sounds that will also teach about onomatopoeia. This book may also help children with critical thinking as the animals figure out the source of the sound.
Cons: It may be a bit difficult for younger children and those who do not read expressively to catch the onomatopoeias.
Age Range: 2-7
