Description

By the big red barn

In the great green field,

There was a pink pig

Who was learning to squeal

There were horses and sheep and goats and geese - and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn.

In Joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown's simple, rythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

There were horses and sheep and goats and geese -- and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn. In joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margarett Wise Brown's simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

"Brown's melodic text is beguiling, while its subject'the big red barn that houses a menagerie of animals and their offspring'will have instant appeal to young children. Bond's newly added drawings have a simplicity that suits the story [about the cycle of a day on a farm]. A welcome reprise." 'BL.
