Throughout his narration, Bingo uses his senses while searching for the perfect adventure. Whether attempting to drive a rusty old car, discovering the empty barn, or meeting the frisky horses, Bingo asks questions and encourages children to answer him. Children are included in Bingo's decision making, and this draws them more deeply into his adventures because they feel personally involved with his story.
Search and find "game" pages accompany the story from which children can hunt farm images and textures they may have missed. This story complements elementary school farm studies and can launch "writers' workshops," encouraging children to create stories from different points of view.
