"I really liked the illustrations of this book. The children seemed to be captivated while I was reading it. Parents and teachers can use this book in a variety of ways to extend the lessons bestowed. I asked the kids to look and listen for the same sounds in any of the words I read. After looking for similarities of beginning and ending sounds (identified phonemes), we looked for all the rhyming words and then came up with some on our own. It was a fun lesson!"
—Academics' Choice Awards teacher reviewer
"My 3-year-old enjoyed counting the animals on the page. He thought the cow on the wheelchair was funny. He listened to the song many times and was really engaged in the book."
—Academics' Choice Awards parent reviewer
"The first thing that caught our tester's eye was the bright and colorful illustrations. The quality of the book is superb. Parents and kids alike enjoyed the tempo of the song which was really upbeat and fun. Finally, at the end of the book there is an 'Activities' page that shares ideas for how parents can incorporate the book and song into activities with their children. There are ideas for making your own musical instruments, changing up verses in the book, and how to go about discussing the story with your child."
—The National Parenting Center
"Hey, Diddle, Diddle," let's head to the theatre and see if the cow can really jump over the moon. She has admirable persistence—and a lot of help from some very colorful friends!
