Great for Science... But No Way It's for Beginning Readers - a review of 'A Day at Greenhill Farm" Feb 15, 2006
This is another good book from Scholastic. It deals with the many animals one might find on a farm. Cows, ducks, pigs, chickens, horses, geese, sheep and more, are all here and presented with eye pleasing photos.
We see babies with their mothers, and have a chance to see what types of food they eat. (Baby animals nurse, of course.) We also get to see what a sheep looks like before, during, and after it is shorn.
That said, there is no way that this is a book for just beginning readers. First there are too many words on some of the pages and some of the vocabulary is a bit sophisticated. Words like : orange, goslings, milking, through, webbed, oily, and noise.
Three Stars. Good book with attractive pictures of farm animals. Should be of interest to older babies thru 1st Graders. I wouldn't purchase it as a beginning reader though
Beautiful little book Jul 1, 2002
Small children are fascinated by farm animals and this book has beautiful pictures of these animals along with very nice text for when they are older. Our one year old loves it now and "reads" it to herself.
