Hannah on the Farm by Marjan van Zeyl

Hannah the hen spends a whole day on the farm looking for a quiet place to lay her eggs, so that she can have chicks of her own.

A charming board book for very young children, which introduces farmyard animals and their characteristics. With lively illustrations in a classic style.

Reviews

'a gentle story ... and thus a great starter book for babies and young children just learning about farm animals. The illustrations of natural farm settings by Dutch artist Marjan van Zeyl are evocative and soothing.'

'These are delightful books for the youngest readers to practise talking about the pictures and page turning and for emergent readers to 'have a go', supported by an adult.' --Martine Horvath, EYE: Early Years Educator, April 2011. 'A charming story perfect for springtime.' --Creative Steps, Spring 2011. 'This is a charming board book with lovely illustrations to share with a very young child. Farmyard animals are introduced in traditional scenes of farmyard tales with a rural Dutch look to them.'

. 'The book is beautifully illustrated and will make a nice addition to any bookshelf.
