Every week, my son and I head to the library and/or thrift store to stock up on books related to the theme we are learning about. Last week, we found some really adorable, colorful, creative, enriching and engaging books (you know, all of those things us moms look for in a book for our child) to supplement our learning on farms. Here is what we found, including some of what we already had…
A fun story that may have you drawing parallels with your own family’s mornings!
A great board book for learning about life on the farm. It offers colorful pictures with various textures, shiny objects and sound words to represent the objects featured.
A colorful farm book that also features shapes. This book is a visual wonderland for little eyes.
Rhyming and warm watercolors make this a great board book for a developing child. It also takes the reader on a tour of the farm and animals are counted along the way!
Beautifully illustrated, this rhyming book also features sound words and factual information about many of the animals.
Super illustrations with a folkart feel, this book is amazingly cute and short enough to hold the attention of the very young. You will love the rhyming, the farm animals and their sounds…but most of all, the lesson about friendship and helping those in need.
This great peek-a-boo book isn’t just for babies…the colorful illustrations and oversized flaps make guessing each peek-a-sound a fun learning experience for all readers.
An essential for language development, this book offers full-color pictures and simple text. Use it to teach word identification in any language (we use it for English and Deutsch).
Although small, this chunky book is very entertaining. Colorful illustrations paired with prompted questions about the animals provide an educational interaction for parent and child.
A Golden Book classic, this book is charming for many reasons. It provides a realistic view of the farm and illustrates how children have a place there too. Not the typical “farm book” with animals and their sounds, but its vintage feel will have you reading it again and again.
