Senses on the Farm

Senses on the Farm

by Shelley Rotner

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
Life on the farm is explored through the five senses as we see the calf's big ears, touch the soft wool of a lamb, hear a hungry horse chomp, smell the pigpen, and taste the farm fresh milk. Beautiful, focused photographs capture the simplicity and charm of life on a farm. Readers will love gazing into the eyes of a young calf and seeing into the nostrils of an adorable piglet in an up-close shot of his wet nose. Using senses to explore the well covered subject of farm life helps children relate in a tangible way and encourages them to imagine how each of the subjects represented really do see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. Accompany this book with a field trip to a farm to help children make real life connections with what they see on the page and to see if a lamb is really as soft as it looks in this book! Reviewer: Carly Reagan

This basic exploration of the senses features a farm setting and adorable kids in full-page quality photographs. Simple text is peppered with interesting vocabulary: "Touch a horse's bristly coat"; "Smell the pigpen and the farm animals' manure"; "Hear the hens cluck." Organization is random, bouncing unpredictably among seasons, but the farm subject and vibrant photographs will have great appeal to young children.-Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
