Reviews

For centuries we've counted on children to take real responsibilities for the animals that provided us with food and companionship. In the process, kids not only grew food, but they also grew their own sense of themselves as capable beings. Barnyard Kids gives kids the tools to dream about and plan for raising farm animals, empowering anyone who reads it to imagine a life with farm animals and then to act to make it real
