Overview

Caldecott award-winning illustrator Simms Taback adds Farm Animals to his best-selling City Animals and Safari Animals series. Just like the other books, Farm Animals is a guessing game.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—Six grinning animals hide beneath the folded pages of this oversize board book. In large, child-friendly print, Taback introduces each creature with the question, "Who am I?" and provides a clue ("I have a feathery tail") on the opposite page. As children lift the overlays, more of the illustration and a second clue ("I crow when the sun comes up") are revealed. Beneath the last flap, which opens into a four-page foldout, the animal proclaims its identity ("I am a rooster"). A pig, a rooster, a goat, a cow, a sheep, and a donkey are highlighted in the beguiling guessing game. The simple, boldly outlined and brightly colored illustrations portray each animal standing against a monochromatic sky ranging in color from yellow to blue to purple. The pages are constructed of sturdy card stock, allowing small fingers to practice unfolding and re-folding the flaps. An amusing and instructive story.—Linda L.
