It is Cow’s birthday, and his friends are making him a special cake. Only Duck wants to add a turnip, and Pig and Mouse think that is silly. But what will Cow think?

What Will Fat Cat Sit On? 
A group of animals is terrified at the prospect of being sat upon by the imposing Fat Cat, until the mouse comes up with a solution that satisfies everyone.

Chicken is not happy when a few boisterous cows invade his new sofa. How will he get them to stop their antics?

Can You Make a Scary Face? 
Ladybug invites the reader to join the silly fun, making this another of my interactive storytime favorites.

You didn’t know the Easter Bunny has an assistant? You’ll be even more surprised to know the assistant is a skunk! Just imagine all the fun they have coloring eggs together. Except when the skunk has some uncontrollable odor problems.
