About the Author
Matthew Van Fleet's innovative books have been introducing children to basic concepts for almost twenty years. His unique formats invite toddlers to touch, press, pull, lift and even sniff as they explore colors, shapes, numbers, letters, opposites and more.His books include the #1 New York Times bestsellers Tails and DOG as well as the New York Times bestsellers CAT and Alphabet. His first interactive touch and feel book Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings has sold more than 1.3 million copies.He lives with his wife, two sons and pug dog in Chappaqua, New York.
This multipurpose book follows the same format as the creators’ Dog (2007) and Cat (2009), expanding the concept to include various farm animals like sheep, chicken, pigs, and horses. Crisp animal photos are arrayed against a white background, and the spreads feature different interactive elements from fuzzy touch patches to spring-loaded tabs that put the critters in motion, to flaps that reveal simple pop-ups. The text offers rhythmic morsels of information, such as the goat page that reads, “Mommy nanny, / Daddy billy, / Little kids butt.” A hefty and handsome barnyard book. -- Booklist
