The Farm booklet is home to a bright barnyard surrounded by an apple tree and ten farm animals.
All of the ten farm animals from a pink cow to a yellow duck, pig, horse, rabbit, sheep, billy goat , cat, dog , cock are finger puppets as well and can be popped onto the finger for some fun free and pretend play. Working on popping the finger puppets and moving the fingers is a great hand/finger exercise!
With a red barn on the cover page, the booklet opens to a farm land. On the inside are homes for few farm animals on the left hand side and lazy colorful rolling hills with a windmill on the right hand side.
The child can learn to pair the farm animal to its home such as duck to pond, pig to muddy puddle, rabbit to burrow, horse to stable and so on. With the windmill on the right hand side, concepts such as slow and fast, clockwise and anticlockwise , rotation can be introduced.
All the seven colors of the rainbow can be spotted on the booklet here and there. Bring about talking points around the following and encourage child to identify
1) different colors
2) sounds different animals make
3) animals and what their young ones are called
A detachable sun and cloud along with a tree that can be placed both in a 2d and 3d way adds to the entire effect of the farm land.
As always, every detachable piece finds a comfortable place for itself when not in use.
