The Farmyard Tales {What We’re Reading}

This is Apple Tree Farm.  This is Mrs. Boot, the farmer. She has two children called Poppy and Sam and a dog called Rusty.

This week I have been reading a selection of books from the “The Complete Books Of Farmyard Tales” by Stephan Cartwright and Heather Amery. It is part of the Usborne family which I am hugely obsessed with!

Moo loves this books and especially loves the task of finding the hidden yellow duck on each page!

We bought this book when she was a baby and I have always read it to her. When she was unable to talk, I read it to her quite a bit, before bedtime, as I said before she loved the interaction of being able to find the yellow duck on each page, which was always fun for both of us!

Now she can choose her own books and occasionally she will choose the “yellow duck book” and this week she did. She still will point out the yellow duck, she now knows where most of them are, but she now listens to the story and asks questions after which I love.

This book consist of 20 stories in total, I only read one at a time. They always start of the same. (This is Apple Tree Farm…. ) and then the story begins. There are also stories for winter, spring, summer and autumn which I think is nice. (It doesn’t dwell on the seasons just the story is set in a different season)

These stories are lovely and I think any child would like them. If you have not read them, I would highly recommend!

If you have been reading and want to share then please pop by Lucy (dear beautiful) Kelle (Maggie Stone) and Carrie (Space for Butterflies) and see what they have been reading and link up there!

    I think we’ve got something similar – Animal Hide and Seek – with Poppy and Sam and the little yellow duck; Kitty’s godmother gave it to us and it’s definitely a family favourite. It’s such a simple idea having the little duck but it makes it a much more interactive read. I’ll have to look out for the rest of the series.

      Yes sounds like its part of the collection. They have a whole range of books, and I think the duck makes an appearance in the majority of pre-school books 🙂
