This book introduces many different animals while possessing the literary element repetition. It talks about all the animals that are spotted around the farm. It is good for young children who are just learning different animals. It is also good because the pictures in the book are of the animals, so the children can associate the animal name with a picture. ( )

I really enjoyed this book because each page began with the previous pages information. This book was an easy reader. I really like that the book began with the same phrase, "When the leaf blew in..." I really enjoyed that the sequence of the story showed cause and effect. The illustrations follow along with the story quite well.

This is a story about a barn where a leaf blows in which causes a whole bunch of chaos. Appropriate for grades K-3.

This book is about when the leaf blew in the barn, its a good example of a chain reaction book because that is exactly what it was. Everything happens because of a leaf that blew in the barn to make the cow sneeze to scare the bird to hit the tree and so on. I liked this book a lot because it was fun to read and see how the leaf flew and what happened after each disaster. It was cool to see it happen all over again because of an animal sneezing. The grade level for this would be 2-4th grade.

This is a great example of a chain reaction book. When the robin flew into the tree, the leaf blew into the barn, etc. I would read this to younger elementary students when learning about cause and effect.
