Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers can push and pull slides to explore cheery if generic outdoor farm scenes in this addition to the Busy Books series. A question prompts readers to slide open a blue barn door where cows munch on hay (“Who’s that hiding in the barn?”), and a golden-haired boy brings buckets of slop for two pigs that have “just popped up to say hello!” Children should enjoy picking out details and the many animals that fill each spread. Up to age 3. (Apr.)
From the Publisher

"Children should enjoy picking out details and the many animals that fill each spread."  —Publishers Weekly

"Though bright and busy, it's the movable parts that really make this farm a memorable one to visit."  —Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A farming family's work is never done. Buoyant images depict the actions of the farmer and several youngsters as they complete their chores. Girls and boys mix both work and play, following traditional gender roles: A girl carries a basket of eggs while a boy drives the tractor, for instance. Unadorned rhymes describe the actions of both the children and their animals. "Time to fetch the fluffy sheep, / Then head for home and go to sleep." Sliders with accompanying arrows add interactivity that complements the text. Hogs pop up above the gate with an easy push, and a turning wheel shows the dog as he rounds up the sheep. Small fingers will easily manipulate the majority of objects independently, though the bale of hay may prove difficult. Though bright and busy, it's the movable parts that really make this farm a memorable one to visit. (Board book. 1-3)
