love turning the pages and opening the chunky flaps to see the sweet
interactions of baby farm animals and their parents. . Each spread features a
chunky board lift-the-flap that figures into the text and story.
“little moo” is a brown calf who appears on the opening double-page spread in a
field facing away from an adult Holstein with horns and eyelashes. The calf is
on a shaped flap, and when the flap is opened, the youngster appears to move
back across the field to nuzzle its caregiver.
On subsequent pages further
animals are animated by the flip of a flap and given nicknames based on their sounds. Each
of these double-page spreads is accompanied by 4 lines of rhymed, sentimental
verse with the final line appearing under the flap. Perfect for sharing!
