SLJ Review of Farm Animals

Each adorable volume opens with an alphabetical list of basic sight words that children will encounter in the book. The ­sentences are brief and simple, but rich in the information very young readers want to know about farm animals: their distinctive sounds; what they look like; how and what they eat; what their food looks like; and how they live on farms. New words are bolded in the text and defined in a picture glossary, and vocabulary is also built through picture captions and arrows connecting photos and words.

Large type and lots of white space make for comfortable reading. High-quality cover art and photographs support the text. People of different genders and ages are depicted doing farm work. Back matter ­includes an index and picture glossary, a ­visual recap of the information presented in the book, and resources for additional ­reading. ­

VERDICT: ­Recommended for schools and public ­libraries. Young ­children will learn much from this fine series, as it answers many basic questions about these familiar animals.
