Emily-Rose loves to visit her Grammie and watch her feed the animals. She always looks forward to her visits on the farm., but wishes she could be the one spreading the corn and slopping the pigs.

This particular day becomes very special: Grammie is going to let Emily-Rose feed the animals! Grammie warns her that the animals can be rambunctious. This is not a problem for the little girl, since she has no idea what the word “rambunctious” means.

She soon learns what it means, though, when she finds

Emily-Rose’s Day At The Farm by Simone Da Costa is an adorable children’s book. It has exactly what I look for in a children’s book: humor, love and a lesson taught.

Emily-Rose loves to visit Grammy at the farm and always wants to feed the animals. Grammy always so no, that the animals are too rambunctious. Emily-Rose doesn’t know what that word means, but she’s about to find out the hard way. Grammy tells her that she can finally feed all the animals and Emily-Rose is so excited. But that task i

I received this in exchange for an honest review. At that time, the copy I received just contained the print and not the illustrations, so I wanted a little bit to see some of the illustrations so I could comment on both components.

I love Emily-Rose's enthusiasm to spend time with my grandmother. I confess to being "Grandmother's baby" myself, not only because of the time I spent with my grandmother but because she raised me as well. She is confused at first when her grandmother doesn't allow he

Emily Rose's Day At The Farm is a gorgeous little book aimed at preschoolers. The story is beautifully told as Emily enjoys a precious day feeding the animals on her Grandma's Farm. Grandma keeps calling the animals "rambunctious" and by the end of the story Emily has learned the meaning of the word.

I will admit that I found "rambunctious" a curious word to be drilling into such young children as I would have thought there were easier and more pressing words for them to learn, nevertheless, the

Can you imagine going to your Grandmother's farm and doing nothing? Emily-Rose's Grammie's farm is filled with all sorts of animals and her grandmother is always feeding them. And Emily-Rose would love to feed them when she goes to the Farm with her family in Emily-Rose's Day At The Farm, but her Grammie wouldn't allow her.

Will Emily-Rose ever get to feed the animals? Da Costa is quite adept at building one's curiosity about this. When her wish is finally granted, we can feel her fear, frustrat

I was given Emily-Rose’s Day at the Farm for exchange of an honest review. To be able to give an honest review, I decided to read the story to my two younger children… to get their opinion of this children’s book.

The pictures grabbed their attention right away, and it took me a minute to settle them back down for the story:) My 8-year-old daughter loved the bright colors, and she said…”Emily is sooo pretty!”

My 3-year-old was quiet until we hit the part of the story that included the animals, he

Emily-Rose loves visiting her Grammie on the farm; however, she’s not allowed to help feed the animals because Grammie says that they are too rambunctious.

Then, one day, she’s finally allowed to do the feeds with Grammie and she’s so excited. However, the experience is not what she imagined, animals do get excited at feed times, and soon Emily-Rose finds out what the word rambunctious means.

Emily-Rose is always excited to visit her Grammy on the farm. She always looks forward to these visits because she loves spending time with her Grandmother, and she also enjoys watching her Grandmother feed the farm animals in high hopes to one day (soon) have the responsibility of feeding them on her own.

Whenever Emily-Rose would ask her Grammy to feed the animals her Grandmother would always tell her that the animals are very 'rambunctious' a word that is very new to Emily-Rose who mistook th

Emily-Rose is a delightful little girl who enjoys visiting her Grammie at the farm. She is always eager to help out but her Grammie usually doesn't let her help feed the animals because they are too rambunctious.

Emily-Rose is uncertain as to the meaning of this very long word. She thinks Grammie wants to have all the fun feeding the farm animals. One day, Grammie decides to let Emily-Rose "enjoy" the experience of feeding all the farm animals. Emily-Rose soon discovers the meaning of the word r

Emily-Rose loves to visit Grammie’s farm. But this time Grammie lets her feed the animals—which she calls rambunctious. Emily-Rose will learn what that means, after a long day of feeding, getting dirty, milking, and being chased.

This book by Simone Da Costa introduces children to a variety of farm animals and the work that goes into caring for them. The colorful illustrations by Anindita Modak, beautifully expresses Emily-Rose’s feelings throughout the book.

What a wonderful children's book! I loved sharing it with my daughter who also loved it! This book was very well written and we both enjoyed everything about it. It is a good book for adults and children to share together as they can both learn something from it! It shows real life and the things that go with it and teaches at the same time!

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading to children or with children, it's great for any ages!

**I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. All opinions are my own**

What a cute little story, this little girl reminds me so much of my own. So full of bright energy and a yearning to try new things. My little one is really quite young so she was mostly interested in the illustrations, and spent most of the time pointing at pictures and flipping pages to see what came next But I am looking orward to reading this to her again and again!!

I was given a copy of this book for review and found it delightful. Although the copy didn't have pictures, I was forwarded to where some would be and found them excellent, a perfect accompaniment to the story.

It was a clever way of introducing difficult words to young children and the use of repetition compounded the meaning for those beginning to read.

A fun story, with an eye to the education of young minds.

Emily-Rose's Day at the Farm is fun read for young children. I enjoyed reading about Emily-Rose's day at the farm with my children. It was fun to watch Emily-Rose learn about the word rambunctious through the animals' actions, and it was cute when Emily-Rose realized that her Grammie is usually right and she should listen to her. Emily-Rose and her Grammie are delightful characters. I think this book will be a big hit with young children.

Simone Da Costa has written a really enjoyable book and both words and illustrations are absolutely enthralling.
Farms and farmyard animals are a winner with most kids and this book won't disappoint. My own grandkids can relate to Emily-Rose and how excited she is when she goes to see her Grammie and feed the animals. Even when the book is closed, the kids will continue talking about Emily-Rose and her day out!

I love this sweet book!

Emily Rose, like most growing children are not afraid to try, but often find themselves in over their heads. I think her Grammy did a great job teaching her a new big word, “rambunctious” and demonstrating with the animals what the word meant.

I look forward to purchasing this book for my great nieces and nephews.

Emily-Rose's Day at The Farm is an enjoyable book for young children. The farm animals and Emily-Rose's reaction to them make the book. And like all good books this one has a lesson to teach the reader.

I received this book as a Goodreads First Read.

Emily-Rose's grandmother has a farm, but up to this day she has never been able to feed the animals herself - "Grammy" always does it. Today's visit is her chance. Grammy takes Emily-Rose around the farm, teaching her how to feed the animals. In the process, Emily-Rose learns that it isn't all fun and games, that animals aren't always what they seem, and that it is important to listen to what you are told.

It's an entertaining story with a great mora
