Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears:

Click, clack, moo.
Click, clack, moo.
Click, clack, moo.

But Farmer Brown’s problems REALLY begin when his cows start leaving him notes!

A muddy country road is no match for this little pick up–that is, until he gets stuck while pushing a dump truck out of the muck.

Luckily, Blue has made a pack of farm animal friends along his route. And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to get their pal back on the road.

In this book kids can explore life on a farm in a simple, lyrical text with boldly expressive images.

This beautiful book captures a world that is at once timeless yet disappearing from view — the world of the family farm.

Big Fat Hen uses an fun bright colors in this simple counting book. There are lots of things to count, such as sticks, eggs, chicks, and hens.

Color Farm by Lois Ehlert

Through imaginative use of cutouts, Color Farm is two books in one. Each recto page shows a barnyard animal–cow, chicken, rooster, duck–composed almost entirely of geometric shapes. Turn the page, and the verso shows one of those shapes cut out and labeled on a contrasting background.

This book is a great way to encourage awareness of and experimentation with the ways shapes combine to form–or even simply suggest–the objects in our world.

I absolutely love the Acorn non-fiction series for kids. This book is a fantastic way for kids to explore where food comes from.

I would also suggest checking out Jobs on a Farm, Farm Animals, and Farm Machines in this series.

In this silly folk tale, a farmer plants a potato eye that grows into an enormous potato that is so big that the farmer cannot pull it out himself.

It takes the teamwork of the entire farm to get this potato free!
