Love the facial expressions on the animals - sort of a dorky, eyes-too-close-together look that is quite endearing.

This didn't really grab me. Simple enough for toddler's and babies and I could probably get the toddlers to make the animal movements. A little girl goes animal by animal around the farm naming the animals and what she movement or sound she loves about them.

I believe I've used this story in Spanish and bilingual story time before, but this last time I used it was for a sheep-themed program for both Spanish and bilingual story time. It's a simple story that introduces different animals on a farm.

Great board book. I love that there are a lot of pages for a board book, a good variety of animals, very colorful illustrations with large focal images and interesting details.

The best feature of this book are the large illustrations. This book also lends itself to having the listeners make animal noises.

The animals are painted in bold primary colors. Very short text. Good choice for young listeners
