Barnyard Friends by Tad Carpenter


Barnyard Friends by Tad Carpenter

It's a barnyard bash - come on down and see who's there! Kids will meet a crowing bird that wakes up the farmer; a curly-tailed creature who rolls in the mud; a mooing mummy in the field with her calves; and a farm full of other wonderful friends staying up late to play. Bright and bold illustrations make each hidden item easy to identify, and seven gatefolds create interactive fun for kids!
