On the Farm by David Elliott
Illustrated by Holly Meade
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Ages: 3 to 6         

From the bull to the barn cat to the wild bunny, the farmyard bustles with life. The rooster crows, the rams clash, the bees buzz, and over there in the garden, a snake — silent and alone — winds and watches. 

This bold and beautifully illustrated picture book is a perfect read aloud to introduce younger children into the lives of farm animals. The language is fun and flows well enticing children to join in and sound like a cow, a pig, cat or one of the many farm animals. A big A plus plus for On the Farm.
