This charming board book features rhyming text and colourful illustrations describing the day to day life of a farm and the animals and people who live on it. Reading the rhyming text helps to familiarise babies with the patterns of speech, and is ideal for helping young children learn to speak and read. Talking and reading go together and this helps a baby to listen. Listening and talking help lay the foundations for language development. Contains `active' words that encourage children to interact with the book.
