Yet another cute board book we found at the library. This one shows a close-up of a baby farm animal- the chick\’s feet, pig\’s curly tail, a lamb\’s bright eye- gives a clue about the animal\’s identity and hints that the child guess \”who is my mommy?\” The following spread shows each baby animal with its mother and identifies their different names- chicken and chick, sheep and lamb, horse and foal etc. It\’s utterly charming, a great introduction to familiar animals, their mothers and some typical characteristics each have, from the goat\’s silky beard to the lamb\’s wooly coat. Six animals are shown, with nice clear photographs. Animal Babies on the Farm is a hit with my child.
