What My Child is Reading (The Farm)

One of J's favorite activities is reading books and I absolutely love cuddling him on my lap and reading. I like to link up to What My Child Is Reading blog link-up. Not only is it a great way to record the wonderful books we've read, but I've found so many new good book ideas by visiting each week.

We have started doing home preschool and this week was a unit on The Farm. Our books followed that theme.

Richard Scarry's The Animals of Farmer Jones

Richard Scarry's The Animals of Farmer Jones (Big Little Golden Book)

Richard Scarry books are always a favorite in our house. This was such a sweet and simple story. All the farm animals are anxiously awaiting Farmer Jones and wonder why he hasn't come to feed them. Happily, they all end up with their food.

The Noisy Farm by Marni McGee

This book was so much fun for us as it takes you through a day on the farm with all the lovely sounds the farmer hears. Very fun making all the cute animal noises together.

Picnic Farm by Christine Morton-Shaw

We love picnics and what's great about this book is it shows kids the different types of foods that come from a farm. The kids visit the farm and all the animals and then they have a picnic with the food from the farm.

Let's Go to the Farm by Vermont Story Works

This book was very educational. It's a real working farm and the pictures are photographs that are painted over. Pretty neat and I like the detail about farm life.

Thanks for visiting!
