This story offers a wonderful way to teach children about the pitfalls of passing judgments. A group of farm animals excludes a poor skunk until a good rain and the lure of a warm, dry feather bed forces them to rethink their stereotype of the skunk. My 3-year-old daughter loves the rhymes, and the pictures are hilarious as all of the farm animals crowd into one bed.
Hilarious book with a great moral

This story offers a wonderful way to teach children about the risks of passing judgments. A group of farm animals excludes a poor skunk until a good downpour and the lure of a warm, dry feather bed forces them to rethink their skunk stereotype. In the end, they realize they can all be friends. My 3-year-old daughter loves the rhyme (and a chance to yell, "skunk!"). The hilarious illustrations are fun as well.
Yes there's always room for another colorful happy book!

This bright and cheerful book is filled with several learning possibilities == animal names, animal sounds, names of colors, how to share, and the tolerance of those different from yourself. The story is about a stormy night on the farm when the animals want to crawl into bed with the farmer and his wife to keep warm and dry. But once the skunk tries to join them, all the animals run back outside, leaving the farmer and wife and skunk all cozy in the bed. The animals learn it's better to share than have none at all. The illustrations are wonderful and the book is a combination of text and rhyme, perfect for reading aloud in funny voices. I recommend it!
A 'curl up together' story with fun learning too.

It all gets a bit crowded in this friendly feather bed - but the moral is there's always enough love to go around whoever you are! A great story with animals and their sounds to learn and recite. Good for memory too. My 2½ year old son really enjoyed this - time and time again!
