Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Touch the wooly lamb on the cover and look at the items that make up the farm running across the bottom of the cover. Open up the board book and feel the rough sides of the barn. There are animals also looking at the barn including the wooly lamb. The pig on the next page is fat and pink and it has a soft skin that feels like suede. On a farm, you need to get around in deep mud or high grass and a tractor may be just the vehicle. Toddlers can rub their fingers on the textured surface of the tractor's large wheel. Chickens love to scratch in the dirt and eat insects and seeds. There is a bit of sandpaper to represent the grittiness of the ground where the hens run around. The cow also has a soft hide and it is brown and has more fuzz than the pig's skin. Kids can rub the two and compare. An attractive book for those who enjoy learning by touching.

Kirkus Reviews
Cool pastels and sleek, highly graphic lines give visual heft to this brief, tactile tour of the farm. The sheep on the cover sports fuzzy fleece, the barn is made of vertically oriented brown corrugated "wood," the pig features a patch of touchitagain moleskin, the tractor is equipped with a marvelously rubberyfeeling tire, the hens walk across a corkboardlike yard and the cow's brown spot is a soft terrycloth. If the touchandfeel elements are superior to many of their ilk, however, the text is not, achieving rhyme but not much meaning: "Feel the GROUND. / Hens run around. // Touch the COW. / Do it now." This flaw, combined with the lowcontrast palette, makes this one a miss. A companion, Count (9781934706756), shares this book's visual sensibility, but not its tactile aspect. (Ages 618 mos.)
