Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Casey has a farm in his backyard, and it fits in an old wooden drawer. Kids will want to watch as Casey pulls out his toy pigs, cows, horses and sheepbut they'll need to watch carefully. Jordan's hand-tinted photographs possess an heirloom stereoscopic quality that straddles the line between imagination and reality. Their three-dimensional tangibility gives toys a transfigurative power and real animals a surreal cast. Readers will appreciate Casey's tiny farm-in-a-box and delight in seeing animals up close and full-sized. Aiding the comprehension of youngest readers, the text carefully tracks the photographs and employs barnyard sounds that invite participation. Most gratifying is the imagination's escape through toy figures into a world of real animals, and then the satisfied return when the farm is packed back in the drawer. An inventive bedtime tale, this trip to the farm far surpasses ordinary moo-moo-here and cluck-cluck-there picture books. Ages 2-6. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
Casey has an old wooden drawer filled with toy farm animals. As he plays, the creatures come to life. Pigs snort, a cow moos and the chicks scratch the soil. When it is time to go in and have dinner, the animals are returned to the drawer, but when Casey settles down to sleep that evening he dreams of his barnyard animals. Hand-colored photographs illustrate this story of a day on Casey's farm. Toddlers will join in as Casey's imagination brings to life his farm animal toys. The youngest will enjoy the pictures of the animals and a child at play. A gentle story to read to a child just before bedtime.
School Library Journal
PreS-KYoung Casey is so absorbed with his plastic farm animals and "barn" wooden drawer that "If you listen the way Casey does, you might even hear a moo." And the story moves seamlessly from that point in the boy's imaginative play into the world of real farm animals, as they are introduced one by one in rhythmic prose. Jordan's hand-tinted photographs also reflect that blend of reality and imagination, and add a nostalgic charm to the well-designed pages. This is an ideal bedtime bookquiet and reflective to the end: "Sh-h-h. It's time to snuggle into sleep...and dream sweet animal dreams of a new day on Casey's farm." There are many fine farm animal stories available, including Margaret Wise Brown's The Big Red Barn (HarperCollins, 1989) and Reeve Lindbergh's The Midnight Farm (Dial, 1987), but none with Jordan's particular approach. Young children will enjoy this book, and so will their parents.Lee Bock, Brown County Public Libraries, Green Bay, WI
Kirkus Reviews
Casey's farm is in his backyard: His animal creatures are toys, a wooden box his barn. But Casey's imagination fires on all eight cylinders; his playthings become the stuff of life. He fancies dusky morning stalls with cows in attendance, rabbits escaped from the hutch, buzzing lama mamas, chicks snoozing under the mother hen, and great grunting pigs (all ably caught by Jordan's camera). After a long day on the farm, Casey shuffles off to bed. Jordan (with Jan Greenberg, The American Eye, 1995, etc.) pens a text so gentle it simply melts into air—"The shy lamb cuddles next to the thick winter coat of mama sheep. Ba-a, ba-a, ba-a-a"—except, that is, when it rambles into the habitual prodding of a kindly keeper: "Don't go too far," says the pig; "Stay in line," cautions the goose. Perhaps any story would play second fiddle to Jordan's hand-colored photographs. Even when the image itself lacks inherently dramatic content, the colors impart an ancient warmth and imbue the image with emotion and, at times, melancholy. At Casey's farm, the days are always summer and the light a shade of gold.
