A girl names all the animals she likes on her farm, from Jock the dog to the pig and her piglets

Ages 1-3. The stone walls, rolling hills, and pebbled walks of her native Northern Ireland cozily encompass McDonnell's friendly farm, and all the farm animals wear welcoming grins when introduced on succeeding double-page spreads. As the young narrator declares her love for each creature in oversize boldface, McDonnell presents a contented dog waiting to be petted, a happy goat scampering free of its tether across the field, a gargantuan sow delightedly suckling its piglets, and a host of other barnyard residents, all brightly pictured in the acrylic and gouache illustrations. Whether from the city or the country, children will be eager to make the acquaintance of this jovial menagerie. Ellen MandelFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-A charming picture book filled with a small child's joyous love for all the animals on her farm. Large, bold illustrations and a clear text fairly explode with exuberance. Descriptions of ducks "...waddling to the water," hens "...hopping up and down," a goat "...racing across the field," a cow "...swishing her tail," a pony "...rolling over and over," and a turkey "...strutting around the yard" convey a sense of bustling activity. The double-page acrylic-and-gouache paintings combined with the simple text make this a perfect choice for sharing with toddler groups.
