Every child wants to learn about farms and farm animals.
Big Farms, Little Farms is the latest in the Big & Little series. It takes children on a journey through all aspects of farming – the big animals,
the small animals, and all the typical farm machinery, especially tractors. It tells interesting facts about animals and breeds as well as explaining
what each farm machine does. Each breed is illustrated in colour and includes both famous examples such as the Hereford bull, the Shetland sheep, and Tamworth pig, alongside more unusual animals such the emu, the alpaca, ostrich, yak and bison.
And of course no farm can do without a dog, so all the famous farming breeds are also included, from the English sheepdog to the Jack Russell
Terrier. And alongside horse breeds we have donkeys.
Aimed at young children (3–8), this is the ideal gift for the curious child.
A great new informative and fun colour reference book for all kids!
This is a must-have book for all young children and their parents who love horses!
• Includes a huge variety of well-known and less well-known breeds found on farms
