I had a rooster and the rooster pleased me
I fed my rooster on the green berry tree
The little rooster went cock-a-doodle doo
Dee doodle dee doodle dee doodle dee doo

Start with a crowing rooster and turn the pages to see the animals pile up, one by one. As the lyrics add a meowing cat, a quacking duck, and more friendly critters, the stepped pages offer a creative way to read a cumulative story without leaving any of the animals behind.

Emmy-Award winning artist, Laura Vaccaro Seeger beautifully illustrates a traditional folk song popularized by singer Pete Seeger. A CD recording and the written music make this the perfect gift for folk music fans of all ages!

Laura Vaccaro Seeger captures the imagination of the reader from the very beginning. Her stunning illustrations, plus the singing of Pete Seeger on the included CD, made this book come alive for me and my children. I could totally relate to the theme of this book and it brought back many memories of songs my parents used to sing to me while growing up. The paintings are beautifully original and richly colorful. My children have made thisd book a family favorite. It's a must have for any collection.

This is a wonderful book! The CD only adds to the pleasure it gives...not just to kids who are lucky enough to have it but to parents who will be asked to read it night after night. The book design is ingenious; the illustrations are lush and fanciful. I would buy the CD for its own sake, just to hear Mike, Peggy and Pete Seeger sing together. Having found this set now has made my Christmas shopping a lot easier!!
