Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Harkening back to 1956, theis classic children's book by brown is still in print. Her lulling cadences introduce the barnyard animals as they play one day while the children are away. The illustrations carry us from sunrise to nightfall. A perfect choice for older toddlers. The revised drawings in full color will delight kids.
