Today is a busy day on the farm. Pigs are wallowing. Bees are buzzing. Chicks are pecking and peeping. In the middle of it all, one happy child climbs and runs and visits his animal friends. Then there's bathing and brushing and curling up tight--and telling the golden moon, "Good night."
Celebrate the small joys of life in this cozy, lighthearted look at a day in the barnyard. Young children will delight in the activities of their favorite animals before settling down for a good night's sleep.
