My Farm Friendsby Wendell Minor
Here’s a perfect introduction to our farm friends. Is there anything cuter than a little lamb or playful piglet? Farm animals are fascinating, and they are full of surprises, too. Naturally, cows make milk—but did you know they need to drink a bathtub-full of water every day? And of course the turkeys gobble—but sometimes they purr like cats. Wendell Minor’s bright, bold artwork and jaunty verse celebrate the wonders of our farm friends.

I read this to my preschool class, and we all found joy in our time spent with this book on many levels - looking at the pictures, hearing and practicing the rhymes, and learning the fun facts. We were even able to play guessing games with each other on the facts and what animal could we be describing! Try it for certain. Truly.
