Description

Caldecott award-winning illustrator Simms Taback adds Farm Animals to his best-selling City Animals and Safari Animals series. Just like the other books, Farm Animals is a guessing game. Turn the page for your first clue: "I have curly hair." Open the flap and you'll see another clue: "I say "Baa." Open one more and you'll see the answer to the riddle: "I'm a lamb." It's a fun, interactive book featuring five barnyard favorites (hen, goat, cow, lamb and donkey) in Taback's signature bold and bright style.
