Sturdy wooden pages and simple pictures make At the Farm appealing to babies. Non-toxic graphics and finish make for safe mouthing of corners and drooling on pages. To clean, wipe with damp cloth. The graphics are simple, sharp-edged, and clear, colors vibrant. At the Farm introduces baby to a traditional red barn and an array of animals likely found on a farm: pig, sheep, duck, rooster, dog, cow, and horse. Angular page design makes opening and turning pages easy. Like its companion books, At the Zoo and Fruit, At the Farm enhances perspective with visual, tactile, and auditory cues and builds fledgling social skills, from basic communication and language development to cooperation and collaboration.
