I love the classic illustrations in this book (we have the board book version), I remember them from when I was a kid. Lu at 10 months likes the pictures of the animals, although she isn't particularly engaged in listening to me read about them.

It does make me ponder the fascination we, as a culture, have with farm animals and babies. It's an idea of farms that is from the 1940s at best -- a modern working farm isn't going to be anything like this. But there are still so many farm-themed baby toys and decorations! I guess agri-business themed stuff wouldn't be quite so endearing.

Please note I am not complaining about cute baby animals, though!
