Throwback Thursday

E-I-E-I-O: How Old MacDonald Got His Farm (with a Little Help from a Hen) by Judy Sierra, illustrated by Matthew Myers is a new version of "Old MacDonald" rhymes and all.  The help from the hen is not a little, but a lot.  And Old MacDonald's place looks a lot like the community garden over by St. Henry's.  
The illustrations were done in acrylic and oil on illustration board.  They are bright and eye-catching.  You can't go wrong with a Judy Sierra book and the paintings have a fun quirkiness that matches the silliness of the story. This title will make a fun addition to our crop of "Old MacDonald" books.
