"It's Time!" said the dog
on the old barn floor.
"Good news!" said the cat,
and she ran out the door.

"It's time!" called the cat
to the pig in the pen.
"Hooray! cheered the pig,
and he went to tell the hen.

And so it goes, as word spreads around the
barnyard and the friends all gather quickly to
share the good news. But what is it time for?


---"toddlers (will) love the suspense and the
climactic discovery. ---Booklist

-- "simple language, catchy rhymes,
and a repeated refrain . . . build a sense of
anticipation. This feeling of excitement is
reflected in the brightly colored art, which
 shows a cast of appealing animals . . . An 
easy-to-handle size makes this title a great
step up from board books for toddlers.
---School Library Journal
