More About Garth Williams
Artist, Illustrator. He began his career as an artist, becoming headmaster of Luton Art School in England. He was given the British "Prix de Rome" for his sculptures. After returning to America, he turned to illustration, doing work for "The New Yorker." His first book illustrations were for E.B. White's "Stuart Little." This was such a success that he became a full time illustrator of children's books. Williams is perhaps best known for illustrating most of Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House on the Prairie" books. He also illustrated "Charlotte's Web" (also by E.B. White), George Selden's "The Cricket in Times Square," and Margery Sharp's "The Rescuers."
Garth Williams was born in 1912 and died in 1996.

Reviews - What do customers think about Baby Farm Animals (Little Golden Book)?
This is an excellent nursery favorite Oct 6, 2005
We have children at different ages and reading skill levels, yet this one satisfies the crowd. The pictures are excellent, the text large and clear, and the animal descriptions are accurate and fun, and easy to memorize (your children will soon "read along" with you). A top pick and a crowd pleaser when our oldest dughter gets to pick a book for her siblings.
A Classic Nov 23, 2004
I remember reading this book when I was a little girl, and loving the beautiful illustrations. Now my little girl is reading the book and loving it as much as I did. Garth Williams did a great job with the artwork. It's a great book for introducing infants and toddlers to the world of farm animals.
The PERFECT book for teaching your toddler about animals! Jun 27, 1999
Twenty years ago, I used this book to teach my two younger siblings the names and sounds of the farm animals. We read it until it fell apart! I recently purchased a new copy for my two children...and they love it, too! The illustrations are magnificent! Children will love to read this book again and again. A timeless classic!
