Heres a perfect introduction to our farm friends. Is there anything cuter than a little lamb or playful piglet? Farm animals are fascinating, and they are full of surprises, too. Naturally, cows make milkbut did you know they need to drink a bathtub-full of water every day? And of course the turkeys gobblebut sometimes they purr like cats. Wendell Minors bright, bold artwork and jaunty verse celebrate the wonders of our farm friends.
