About the Book

Children share their love for farm animals in a hard-to-find Level A nonfiction reader from an award-winning photographer.

"I like the pig . . . I like the piglet." Simple, joyful text accompanies Shelley Rotner's vibrant and heartwarming photographs of children and animals on the farm. Young readers will learn to identify adult farm animals with their babies and will enjoy the children's looks of happiness and wonder at being close to creatures big and small.


★★★ THE REVIEWS ARE IN! ★★★


★"Special kudos must be given for the very natural way Rotner has included diversity—it's especially gratifying to see diversity normalized and validated early, at the same time that reading comprehension is taught. Simple, encouraging text, charming photographs, straightforward, unpretentious diversity, and adorable animals—what's not to like?"Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
