Farm Animal Storytime, Friday, November 6 @ 10:30.

Moo by David Larochelle has exactly two words:  Moo and Baa.  Hilarious. It has to be good for kids to hear all the grownups enjoying a book with them.

Old MacDonald pop-up book by Cony & Smyth.  Starts the storytime off nicely, and the moms all join in nicely.

Song: Wheels on the (Farm) Bus

On the Farm by David Elliott is illustrated with wonderful woodcuts that immediately catch your eye and draw you in. The real miracle for me is that the book is composed of short poems written about each of the farm animals. Now I love readaloud books that jingle and rhyme, but I usually steer of true poetry for the kids. But these short, fun verses are an enrichment that evoke the animals brilliantly. A real addition to the language.

Tractor by Craig Brown is simple and beautifully written about farm machinery.

Mandy Archer's Driving Series has four books and the kids love them.  Action packed, these animal drivers are always there for every emergency. Just like we like to be. 

Next time: Gobble Gobble MOOO Tractor Book by Jez Alborough. Kinda perfect: farm animals imitating tractor noises.
