Big and Little On the Farm by Dorothy Donohue

Cover Image

The youngest readers will enjoy this trip to the farm, where they will see farm animals big and little.  Each two page spread introduces the concept of big and little by using animals–“Big cow, little calf” and “Big cat, little kitten”.  This provides a great opportunity for vocabulary building for a young reader.  The concept is also a fun one for a young child, who will love the animal babies.  The illustrations are simple collage on brightly colored background paper.  The colors draw the reader into the story without distracting him or her.   If you have a young reader, be sure to check this one out!
