Who was learning to squeal.

Pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown''s simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

"Brown''s melodic text is beguiling, while its subject''the big red barn that houses a menagerie of animals and their offspring''will have instant appeal to young children. Bond''s newly added drawings have a simplicity that suits the story [about the cycle of a day on a farm]. A welcome reprise." ''BL.
