This book was good I thought, and definitely a great book for repetition for younger students. The illustrations really captured the mood and emotions that the animals were feeling so students can make connections. ( )

Animal Farm before it all went sour. No pigs here, though so the ending *will* be happily ever after. Lovely pix, enchanting read aloud text, recommended for ages 2 to 12 to 102. (Large print for those with vision troubles, too!) ( )
