Praise For I Like the Farm (I Like to Read)

* "It's hard to go wrong combining cute kids with adorable animals, but special kudos must be given for the very natural way Rotner has included diversity—it's especially gratifying to see diversity normalized and validated early, at the same time that reading comprehension is taught. Simple, encouraging text, charming photographs, straightforward, unpretentious diversity, and adorable animals—what's not to like?"—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
 
"In Rotner's Farm, the repetitive 'I like' statement is applied to adult and baby animals ('I like the cat. I like the kitten'), which makes this book ideal as a read-aloud guessing game. . . . convey[s] a straightforward simplicity with high returns on reader participation and engagement. An easy addition to young nonfiction collections."—School Library Journal Xpress Reviews
