Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The enticing cover presents many of the farm animals that kids will meet in this early reader. The format is interactive with the text asking questions. Facts are stated in a text that tends to rhyme, and then there is another piece of information presented in a box below the "Did you know?" text. It opens with sheep and then moves on to the sheepdog, who helps herd the sheep, and, as we learn in the fact box, responds to a variety of whistles, which are commands from the farmer telling his dog what to do. The pictures are excellent, and only occasionally is it difficult to see when set against the background, which is often grass. The book is really aimed at parents who want to work with their children to develop reading comprehension skills. There is a full page of instruction at the beginning and a quiz at the end to test comprehension. The closing pages contain a picture dictionary and a list of keywords that run around the page, with a challenge to use them in sentences that kids make up on their own. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
This Level 2 Scholastic Reader features bright color photos of ten common types of farm animals, each with a rhymed first-person introduction and a brief note on the animal's job or products it produces. The gallery is book-ended by a full range of instructional tools for parents or teachers-including a small-type page of techniques for shared reading, a dozen test questions, a five-word glossary and a proto-introduction to parts of speech. Notably uneven in quality of writing (not to mention accuracy)-Horse: "I stand up all day. / I eat grass and hay. / But what I like best / is to gallop and play"-the verse is unlikely to provide much of a draw, but the pictures are strong on child appeal and the volume is replete with "teachable moments." (Easy reader. 5-7)
