A Day at the Farm Reviews
Three kids and their parents spend a day at a farm in this Richard Scarry-esque word book for preschoolers.The pictures are the most important part of this book, as there are few words and the words that are provided are meant to label specific images. Some larger pictures depict entire farm scenes in which the children participate, such as ‘playing with the chickens” or “milking the cow.” Other pages illustrate vocabulary words such as pitchfork, orchard, and manure. Though there are just a few lines of dialogue, the kids’ faces reveal their personalities and reactions to their farming activities. There is also a loose plot for kids to follow from page to page, and like wordless picture books, it provides kids with the opportunity to describe their own version of what is happening on the page.A book like this wouldn’t do very well at story time because it really requires a child to engage with it individually. I might consider having it on hand for parents to look at with their kids before or after story time, or in situations where I’m expecting a very small group, but otherwise, it’s the kind of book that should be shared with a child on a lap, or even that the child should be free to explore on his own.Farm books will never go out of style, and this one is a bit different because it focuses on something more than animal sounds. Readers who enjoy I Spy books and Richard Scarry Word Books will enjoy poring over these pages, possibly even after they learn to read independently. Similar titles to this book include Farm by Elisha Cooper and many of Emily Arnold McCully’s picture books about mice, such as Picnic.
Three adorable children visit a farm and learn all about what farmers do. They pet bunnies, milk cows, pick fruit, avoid manure, and ride in a tractor. The pages are filled with vivid colored illustrations along with clear depictions of the items associated with farming. Since each item is clearly labeled, this title serves as an excellent way to add to readers' vocabulary and help them recognize words. For instance, the illustrations of the rake and the plow are large enough so that readers might feel that they are in the fields with the children. A couple of amusing illustrations show the children barely avoiding manure and disliking the smell of the pigpen.
