Did you know that in a few breeds of geese the males and females have different eye colors? If not, it might be time for a “gander” at Animal Planet’s Farm Animals.
Inside expect over 200 large, dynamic photographs of horses, cows, pigs, duck, turkeys, chickens and more. Learn what farm animals eat, where they live and what their families are like. Included is a two-page spread of wild creatures that use farms as homes, such as spiders, bees, and wild birds.
In the back matter are activities to reinforce learning, such as animal sound matching, as well as a page packed with resources for further exploration, two pages of glossary, and an extensive index.
Farm Animals is a perfect choice for young children who love animals. It could also be used to accompany a field trip to a petting zoo or local farm.
See the review at Wrapped in Foil for suggested activities to accompany the book.
