Nonfiction Monday

Animal Planet Farm Animals provides young readers with a chance to explore the world of domesticated animals. Of course you’ll find the familiar horses, cows, chickens, goats, and sheep one would expect to find on a farm. But the book ranges wider to offer youngsters a look at Swiss sheep, Texas Longhorn Cattle, alpacas, and honey bees as well some of the wild denizens of such as spiders, swallows and owls. Additional topics include the workers familiar on the farm from veterinarians to border collies.

Like the other books in the series, the animal sections are interspersed with thematic units with specific tabs such as Where They Live, How They Live, Vista (showing animals in their environment), Big Data (facts and figures), Animal Gallery (highlighting similarities and differences) and so on. Stunning action-filled photographs, informative notes, colorful maps and charts make for easy access to information and will delight both youngsters and adults as they explore the amazing diversity of wild life on our amazing planet.

A great addition to home, classroom or school library.
