Pages too busy and animals too stylized. ScotFlower I purchased this book because I liked the idea of having an opening in the page that showed the animal on the next page thus the child would have to name the animal before getting the answer. This would enforce the learning of animal names plus the pages also talk about the sounds animals make. Given all the positive reviews, I thought this would be the best farm book with peek-a-boo openings to purchase However, I am not quite a fan of the book for three reasons. 1. The first window opening shows chi. "Such a wonderful book!" according to SabinkaT. I read this book to my 16 month son almost every night. We both love it! I love the wonderful, cute and colorful pictures my son loves the pick a boo holes. The story is very simple but I just describe the scene in each picture to him and we point to all the animals imitating the sounds they make. it's such a beautiful and fun book. "Roosters, Cows, and Pigs, Oh My!" according to J.Prather. Who's in the Farmyard is a wonderful way to introduce your toddler to farm animals and the sounds they make. The book is sturdily constructed, with board pages that are sure to withstand lots of repeat readings, and probably even a few chewings! The repeating refrain of "Who wakes up in the morning to a cock - a - doodle - doo?" is likely to have your little one crowing along before you know it! Each spread with the refrain features a cut out window showcasing an animal that is the answer to the quest
Head down to the farm and spot frisky goats bleating in the garden, little lambs baaing in the fields and many other animals and their babies being woken up by the roosters crow. This is the third book in a popular series, joining Who s in the Garden? and Who s in the Forest?
