This fourth in the “Life-Size” book series takes on farm animals in glorious full-size photographs. Just like the others in the series, there are panels that offer more detailed information, including the animals name, age, and scientific name. There are details about physical characteristics that are explained further as well as a list of facts. All of these are presented in bright colors and with a playful feel.

I used this book in a story time, as a visual for "old MacDonald had a farm" and the kids seemed to really enjoy it. we would sing the first part of the song, then I would open to a page, and they would say that animals name. This is a good introduction to nonfiction for young children as well.

I love the huge horse in the book
Goats "might nibble on your things. Don't freak out!"

Guinea pigs have a vertical split between the nose and the mouth. "This helps them move their mouths easily for munching on hay and veggies."

Kiso horses have lived in Japan for 1000 years.

Everybody loves the super-high-res photos in the Life-Size books from Ten Footer. Farm brings the supersharp pictures, facts, and details to bear on familiar farm animals. Rabbits are fluffy and lovely, but that sheep on the cover is U-GLY.

We love the books in this series, and Life-Size Farm is our favorite. They're great multi-level books. The photos engage readers of all ages. You can read the larger-print narration aloud to younger readers, and independent readers can read the factoid-filled comic strip sidebars. Just a warning: the type size for the comic strips is extremely tiny; the writing is smaller than footnote superscript.

This is a great book for toddlers. My two year old was captivated by the large illustrations. The sparing text make it easy to move on. Their are good nonfiction text features to be explored.

These photos are really (hilariously) actual size. This would be fun to take to a class visit.
