PreSchool-K-Large, colorful cut-paper figures, placed on bright backgrounds, will captivate children as they learn the names of 10 farm residents and their young. In only four words per double-page spread, youngsters are introduced to such creatures as "BIG COW/little calf." The brief lesson ends with "BIG HUMAN/little baby," and shows the child surrounded by wind-up versions of the various animals introduced. The last double-page spread reveals all of the appealing characters together for a review of animal names, counting, or pairing. One small quibble: why "BIG CHICK/little chick," instead of "BIG HEN/little chick?" This title will be enjoyed by prereaders learning word recognition as well as by toddlers.

Ages 1^-3. Each pair of pages shows one big animal and its littler baby. This is hardly a new idea, nor is the farm setting, but the illustrations make this book particularly satisfying for use with the very youngest children. Bold background colors help highlight the paper-cut collages, made from crisp, textured papers. The animals, such as horse, cow, goat and goose, share a jaunty winsomeness, and each animal is large enough to fill most of the page inside the thick black border. This is a good choice for lapsitting story times, and the final spread, showing all of the animals (including the humans) together, will give children plenty of opportunity for pointing and naming.
