Farm Friends

Roan, Anna. 2008. Farm Friends. Illustrated by A.M. Stockhill.

I like touch and feel books. I like board books. I like them a lot. This board book has five touch-and-feel friends for young fingers to enjoy: a sheep, a pig, a cat, a cow, and a duck. The story itself is straight forward. It is a day in the life of farm animals--sunrise to sunset. The text isn't spectacular. But it does what it does well.

On the busy little farm
There's so much to do.
Rooster starts the day
With a cock-a-doodle-doo.

Around the barn door
Five friendly faces peep.
Chick, Cat, Cow, Piglet,
And la-a-a-st comes Sheep.

Bright colors. Farm animals. Friendship.
