The sun shines brightly on the barn and the pond. The dog plays. The duck swims. The cat naps. And the hen flaps. It's a fun-filled day down on the farm for an exuberant young girl and her many friends. Rita Lascaro's cut-paper collage illustrations add a colorful dimension to the busy activities of farm life.

Editorial Reviews

Gr. 1. In this book from the Green Light Reader series, a little girl imitates the animals and people she sees on the farm: "I see my dog play. / I can play like my dog" begins the brief narrative. Just as simple and straightforward are the collage illustrations of torn and cut papers, usually brightly colored solids lightly shaded with colored pencils. Short words, short sentences, and repetition mark this as a good choice for beginning readers, but toddlers will also respond to the simplicity of the words and pictures as well as the activities of the characters.
