What did you like about the book:  A humorous Ready-To-Read Level 2 Click Clack early reader from award-winning author Doreen Cronin and the Farmer Brown and Duck series.  It is a summer day and the animals are very hot.  Farmer Brown only has a pond but his brother, Bob has a pool.   They all head to Bob’s where he gives everyone sunscreen, goggles, and a  towel.  Everyone is ready for the pool- duck is the first one in and is an excellent swimmer.  Farmer Brown and Bob then jump in the pool together.  The chickens are excellent divers and dive in from the diving board.  The pigs wade in doing the backstroke.  The cows do not like to be splashed and do not want to go in the pool.  It is too loud and crowded for them.  Then everyone gets out of the pool and the cows are now ready to dive, splash, float and make room for everyone else.  It is fun for everyone to be cool in the pool!
