A delightful boxed set of 9 mini-books about different animals on a farm.
"A cold wind rattles the old barn door, But snug inside is soft warm straw. It's here, while snow outside lies deep, Where safe and sound lie huddled sheep." Each mini-book features cute and colorful artwork, plus rhyming text telling a simple story about the farm animal featured in the book. The rhyming text helps young children to learn about the patterns of language, including stress, intonation, and timing, having a positive effect on their reading development.
