What did you like about the book?  This fun board book is filled with moveable parts that give the reader a day on the farm experience.  Little ones can pull a tab to open the barn door, clean a muddy pig, shear a sheep and even milk a cow.  One page has a fun circular wheel that allows readers to feed Zora the horse.  As readers move the wheel a sugar cube, carrot and apple pop into Zora’s mouth.  The bright digital illustrations are full of fun, especially on the page where Lulu the seep is shorn and is revealed to be wearing a yellow polka dot bathing suit underneath her wool.  The sturdy pages will hold up well to lots of use.  Sure to be a hit!
