    Imagine the African Sahara and that version of Old MacDonald Going through the number of animals and their sounds which goes on and on Neo was not sure if the sounds really were right since he has never heard of a grunting hippo

    Old Mikamba Had a Farm by Rachel Isadora is a uniue rendition of the song Old MacDonald Had a Farm set in an African game park and featuring fourteen wild animals and their soundsIsadora's illustrations were done with oil paints printed paper palette paper ink and pencil Her bright collage artwork should attract readers and listeners with some varied perspectives and very effective portrayal of animal movement Among the animals shown are baboons elephants zebra cheetahs dassies warthogs hippos giraffe lizard springboks parrots ostrich rhinos and lions Most pages have illustrated bordersIsadora's text keeps the classic structure of the song but using different animals and their sounds I enjoyed most of the sounds with bleat and bellow being exceptions On the other hand introducing these words along with whinny can increase children's vocabulary Using this story song to introduce the idea of animal conservation and endangered animals is clever A two page list of the animals with a factual sentence about each one completes the tale I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation especially the illustrations Possible reading suggestion 14 verses may be a lot for younger listeners so some could be skipped depending on your audience This book is highly recommended for school and public library collections For ages 3 to 7 animals Africa endangered species songs read aloud and fans of Rachel Isadora

    Old Mikamba is Old MacDonald on an African game preserve Some unexpected animals such as dassie rock hyrax and springbok are included Picture book for toddlers I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for scenes of an actual farm in an African setting

    1 This the Text to Text African version of Old MacDonald Had a Farm It would be such a fun read aloud with any group of young elementary students In this case old Mikamba describes his hippo giraffe elephant springbok and other African animals and the sounds they make in the rhythmic pattern of our English version of Old MacDonald Had a Farm2 Old Mikamba Had A Farm has the same familiar rhythmic pattern as does our Old MacDonald rhyming song and also illustrates some of the same animals we see in America parrot elephant and hippo to name a few Delightful collaged illustrations use African cloth patterns wood like bark and children who have obvious differences from how we dress and look in America Of course children are also introduced to native African animals and the sounds like make as well The last two pages of the text summarizes all the animals in the book and interesting facts about eachespecially that some of them are on the endangered species list 3 Bloom's Taxonomy uestions1 Creating How would you protect yourself from the animals in the book that are obviously dangerous to humans?2 Analyzing What do you think is the main idea of this book?3 Understanding Is this book really the same as Old MacDonald Had a Farm? Why or why not?4 Evaluate What change could you make to the title of the book to show the difference from our American version of the story?5 Remembering Can you name all the animals that are the same in our country?6 Applying Draw an illustration Put some animals you think would be dangerous in cages and others you believe are not dangerous out amongst the people in the zoo

    Old Mikamba is a farmer just like old MacDonald But on this farm he has a lion an elephant a baboon an ostrich and Whether it's a cheetah who goes grrr grrr here or a a warthog who goes snort snort there this is a great book to use with a tutee or in a story time with a tune everyone knows a blend of familiar and unfamiliar words and sounds and eye catching illustrations The second grader I was working with gave it four stars


  6. A A says:

    A rewrite of Old MacDonald Why not just write a new song?


  7. Kimberly Kimberly says:

    Very cute Might be fun to use during an Africa or JungleSavannah themed storytime


  8. Molly Cluff (Library!) Molly Cluff (Library!) says:

    Essentially Old Macdonald had a farm but with grassland animals

    picture book that can be sung I read this to a mixed grade class using a helper to hold the book and myself playing the guitar surprisingly to me at least the kids LOVED singing along even if we kept saying McDonald instead of Mikamba We did talk about each of the different animals on each page a bit so we could agree on what they might sound like etc but we went through all 13 verses LOUDLY and appreciatively A super big hit with the younger grades 1st through 4th? and even some but not all of the older 5th 6th gradersSide note I also recommend other books by Rachel Isadora if you are looking to diversify your shelves and book displays Her illustrations are always vibrant and kid friendlyAnother side note none of the kids asked what a game farm was but I was prepared to explain that in Africa they have wild game reserves that people can visit either to view and photograph the animals like a zoo and sometimes to hunt insert sad expression

    Old Mikamba had a farm is very similar to the American version of Old McDonald had a farm but the story was about jungle animals instead of farm animals I enjoyed reading this book and I think that it would be a good book to read to young children kindergarten age or younger and explain to them that this is similar to Old McDonald but describes a different culture and continue talking about different cultures It allows for the children to learn about new cultures and ask any uestions they might have This is a good book to show young children different animals that they are not used to seeing daily At the end of the story if gives interesting facts about each jungle animals This would be perfect for an animal lesson for young kids I thought that the illustrations were amazing the artist did an amazing job making the reader feel as if they are in the story as well
