Description - We Love Animals on the Farm by Nicola Baxter
This book helps you find out about farm animals and their cute babies in this beautifully illustrated book for little ones. You can see chickens and their fluffy chicks, a mother pig and her dozen muddy piglets, and woolly sheep with their lovely lambs. There are also cute calves, crazy kids (of the goat variety!) and ducks enjoying a dunking in the water. It features detailed pictures by Gaby Henson and informative captions by Nicola Baxter make this a perfect book for young animal-lovers who want to know more. You can meet six families of farm animals in this delightful book. Here young readers will learn how mother hens lay eggs. Usually, the farmer collects these for us to eat, but sometimes he lets the hen sit on them...until they hatch out into little chicks! When baby ducks hatch out, they are similarly soft and fluffy. It is not long before they can swim as strongly as their parents - they love to splash! Elsewhere on the farm, a mother pig has twelve piglets to look after - that's a lot of mouths to feed! Nearby, mother cows and goats produce milk for their babies - it is full of all the good things they need.
Many people like milk, too, and it can be made into delicious cheese. You can also see where wool comes from to make our clothes: the soft coats of sheep, called fleeces. When sheep are sheared, it is like they are having a haircut! See all this and more in this adorable book.
