This book is a good look at rhyming words without being poetical or sing-song. It is small but has nice pictures of all kinds of farm animals and lots of young. Recommend for use prior to a farm trip and possibly to show kids that animals on a real farm are actually housed by species, not all together.

This book talks about the animals' day on the farm. It goes through the different noises the animals make, places they play, and then how they return back to the big red barn to go to sleep. ( )

By the big red barn
In the great green field,
There was a pink pig
Who was learning to squeal.

There were horses and sheep and goats and geese--and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn. In joyous and exuberant

Pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown's simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

In the barnyard there are roosters and cows, horses and goats, and a pink piglet who is learning to squeal. Margaret Wise Brown's lulling story about a day in the life of a barnyard is now available as a sturdy board book. Felicia Bond's atmospheric illustrations add to the tranquil simplicity of this story.
