Illustrated by Steve Jenkins, Henry Holt Books for Young Readers, May 12, 2015.

“Verdict: Lovely and exciting, this title is a great hook for young researchers, as well as fledgling ornithologists.”

-Starred Review, School Library Journal.

“Repetitive onomatopoeic sounds such as ‘CHOP, CHIP, CHOP’ and ‘BONK-BONK-BONK’ combine with plentiful alliteration to make the simple verses come alive . . . Attractive and surprisingly informative, this should join the duo’s Eat Like a Bear (2013) on every preschool and primary nature shelf.”

-Kirkus

“Sayre introduces the distinctively noisy woodpecker and the rhythmic cadences that fill its industrious life through a rhyming, sound word-filled text.”

-Horn Book

“Short, playful text featuring plenty of action words and onomatopoeia describes a variety of woodpecker activities.”

-Booklist
