Animals never fail to catch babies' eyes -- and this bold presentation makes them even more irresistible. Introduce babies to the animal residents of a farm in a bright, graphic, nearly wordless board book that will grab their attention as it fosters developing visual skills. Each right-hand page features a simple white shape of a pig, sheep, dog, horse, goose, or cow against a vivid background, while the facing page features the same shape in a charming, folk-art-style pattern.

Review quote

The book is a showcase for [Brown's] understated hand-printed lino prints: each animal appears in profile, set against inked backdrops in strong shades of green, red, and blue...Embossing and glossy accents add further polish to an already elegant design.
--Publishers Weekly A graphically striking introduction to farm animals...Simple and beautiful.
--Kirkus Reviews [A] simple, lovely board book... [A]dults will love the artistry, and children never tire of identifying animals and making sound effects.
--School Library Journal
