Where am I? On the Farm
There is no story here, at least not spelled out in text. Instead we are shown a series of images and a label. The first page features a cow and on the opposite page is a farmer feeding the cow grass. Each additional page is like this. I really like the format. Not only will young children learn the word for the featured image but they will get to see the image in action. Imaginations will come to life as children leaf through this book. The images are drawn with thick bold lines that enhance the drawings. Children will really be able to relate to the artwork and hopefully make up their own stories as they read the book again and again.
The quality of the pages is outstanding. I wish the cover was padded with rounded edges on the cover and interior pages. While this is not the case the pages feel like they are made of a durable plastic. I have never seen pages like that and it works nicely in the book.
This is a great book for reading aloud with children aged birth to three. They will have fun pointing to the artwork and mouthing the words as they become accustomed to them.
There are several other titles by Shulamit Serfaty that I will be featuring over the next week or two. For information visit Jolly Giraffe and stand by for additional titles.
