School Library Journal Review

Toddler-PreS-Bee and Billy are two children who meet at a farm. They both enjoy an exciting trip as they meet farm animals, witness an egg hatching, and play with friends. The two develop an adorable friendship. Let's Go to the Farm! has a catchy rhyming pattern that would make it an enjoyable read-aloud. The bold lettering can be used as a guide for phrase emphasis while reading. This book also features various educational components. Readers are asked to count and identify farm animals. The colors of clothing are also mentioned, aiding readers in learning this concept as well. This book focuses on what farm animals do rather than solely focusing on the sounds that they make or what they look like. This important aspect helps to expand young readers' perception of what it would be like to actually visit a farm. Large vibrant artwork is done with bright primary and secondary colors that pop against the book's white backgrounds. The texture of animal fur, hair, and hay is illustrated with curved and straight line patterns. This element gives characters a three-dimensional effect. Diverse families are seen interacting and developing friendships with one another, giving the story an inclusive and inviting feel. VERDICT An engaging picture book that demonstrates how friendship, adventure, fun, and learning can happen anywhere.-Deanna Smith, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY © Copyright 2017.
