This is a great book for kids who love farm animals and the sounds they make. As you follow a family through their day of waking up on the farm from breakfast to bedtime, from the kitchen for breakfast to the barn to feed the animals, to the garden to hoe the vegetables to the living room at night.

I absolutely adore the illustrations in this book. Love them!

It’s a rhyming book too!

All of the animals on the farm love the kisses that their parents give them. If your child is in that stage right now where they love farm animals, this would be a great book for them.

This is a great book about a boy and his grandfather in the garden and a red hen that keeps following them. This story has a lot of repetition which children love and is great for developing beginning reading skills. It also is a rhyming books which is also great for beginning reading skills. Children will like the ending when they finally find out why that hen was following them. She has a surprise for them…

The mama animals have put their babies down to sleep for the night so they decide to have a barn dance while the little ones sleep. Each of the mamas ends up getting tuckered out and crawling into bed with their little ones and once the little ones notice that the mamas are all asleep they get up and have their own dance party. This is a super cute book and it rhymes…I am a sucker for cute books with a good rhyme.

Little Pink Pig by Pat Hutchins

It is time for Little Pink Pig to go to bed and his mother can’t find him anywhere. She asks the cow and the horse and the chickens and the sheep, but no one seems to be able to see him or hear him. Your children will love this book because they know exactly where the pig is the whole time. It’s fun for children to know something that the characters in the story don’t know. 🙂 Your child will also love this book if they are into animals and animal sounds right now.

I know there was a time in our house when this book would have been read ALL.THE.TIME. If your kids are going through that toddler/preschool phase where they LOVE all things animals or if they are into making animals sounds, then this is the book for you. I also love that it rhymes and the illustrations are so warm and soft.

They happily spend their days on the farm together until a new tractor shows up at the farm. Otis is put behind the barn to be forgotten until one day when the calf needs to be rescued. I bet you can guess who’s the only one who knows just what to do.
