Review: This is such a cute book and filled with such lovely pictures! ‘Farm Animals’ is around A5 in size and as a board book has some lovely hard pages with smooth rounded corners and is filled with some lovely glossy colourful pages of different farm animals. Every page of the book contains a different animal you can expect to see on the farm, including things like a cat, pig, cow and even a frog and caterpillar!
I really love the way this book looks and the illustrations themselves. There’s a fun old-fashioned look to each of the designs which I just love! I’ve already enjoyed the author’s work in books like ‘Animals’ and ‘Farm Animals’ is equally lovely! Every animal looks so happy (I just love the cow’s smile!), and there’s a colourful background to each of them. The text of each animal is unique to the design of the animal too which makes each page a little more fun to look at. There’s just something I really love about the way this whole book looks and I’m sure many children will enjoy these ilustrations too!
The board book is very sturdy and I’d definitely recommend this for anyone interested. It’s definitely a book I would have loved looking at again and again as a child and even now I can’t help but look back at it for all the fun and happy animal illustrations. It’s also interesting to introduce kids to a few other animals like the catterpillar, which I wouldn’t have expected in a book of farm animals!
What do you think of the illustrations in this book? What other board books do you enjoy reading with your children, or did you enjoy as a child yourself (if you can remember 😉 )? Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂
