So the last week was all about farm animals in our Montessori Shelf trays Farm Animal Themed Montessori Activities and also the books we picked were all about farm animals to make our experience better and easier.
We unknowingly have a decent collection of books on farm and farm animals.I never realised till the time I searched the book basket for more books.
Along with all the activities we did last week we read a lot about farm animals too and tried to atleast touch all books we have and made few favourites.
Starting with the favourites
Usborne Farmyard Series Noisy Animals
This is a big board book and attracts the attention instantly with bigger illustrations.The illustration is colourful and attractive.This is a great book for learning the sounds animals make.
This book been one of our favourite as Nirvaan loves pointing out at the animals and makes the sound while pointing them.The last page has all the animals and he loves matching the figurines by keeping the figurines over the picture of the respective animal.
This book is musical but since we borrowed it from the library it doesn’t have the musical part anymore.
Old MacDonald had a farm (Igloo Books )
This one is a musical book and has the rhyme and various animal sound. Nirvaan loves pressing the button to hear the sound animals make and enjoys a lot.He finds it funny though.
Helps in learning about the farm animals and the sound they make.
Farm Animal-Touch and Feel (Sterling Publication India)
This one probably is the first book we got about farm animals and is still one of our favourite.The very fact of it being a touch and feel book has made it top the list.This one is a real inexpensive book by an Indian publishing house.The book has a small write up about the animals in few words in every page along with the touch and feel animal on the other page.A medium sized easy to hold book with bright images.
When I go to the farm (Parragon Books)
More than a farm book it has been our bedtime book.A nice book for the little ones to point out the animals while reading and finding the pig which is hiding in every page is something Nirvaan looks up for.Overall a simple book which tells about the basic characteristic of the farm animals like pigs like to play in the mud in their pen etc.
Who am I ? Series book (Duck & Cow)(Manoj Publications India)
I got three of these books from a roadside hawker just for Rs70 each.The very first page catches the attention and if you ask Nirvaan for his Duck book or the Moo Moo book he would simply bring these to read.
This book tells the basic information about the animal mentioned like ducks like to swim, cow gives us milk etc.
