Folks in rural areas should be aware that one picture shows a child sitting on an untacked pony’s back. This farm book doesn’t make it to the top of the haystack.

Synopsis

The family that readers met and adored in Picture My Day and Picture My World is off to spend a day at a farm. From collecting fresh eggs to milking a cow and picnicking under an apple tree, from tasting sweet honey to petting a donkey and riding in a tractor, these three siblings — and readers along with them — will encounter many of the chores and pleasures of daily life on a farm.

As the inquisitive siblings are introduced to the farm’s animals, plants, and buildings, young readers will learn new words for familiar objects. The illustrations are bright and clear, with just enough detail to entice preschoolers to linger on each page. The accompanying text ranges from simple labels to short sentences. And with lots of affectionate moments between family members on display, children and parents alike will delight in poring over the pages of this picture book.
