This irresistible set of four illustrated board books is packaged in a deluxe gift box that doubles as a play barn after the books are unpacked. Each book depicts the story of daily life with one of four farm animals — chicken, goat, cow, and pig — and features a sturdy stand-up figure of the animal. Geared to ages 0 to 3, the books celebrate and teach about the activities on the farm while introducing basic vocabulary words. The stand-up animals let the action come to life as kids place the four animals in the play barn.

An unbeatable read-and-play combination, with books, barn, and animal figures, for whole afternoons of farm-themed fun!
