Farm Day

Claire Henley, Author Dial Books $10.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0-8037-0954-6
In these companion volumes, glowing illustrations and minimal text guide youngsters through these intriguing environments. The verso of each spread presents one or two sentences describing the activities of various animals--and the farmer, who ``drives his big red tractor.'' Also on the farm, a rooster crows (nearby chicks block their ears), pigs chow down at their trough, ducks splash through puddles, horses gallop and, true to their nature, ``the goats eat all the flowers in the garden.'' In the jungle, monkeys cavort, hippos wallow and ``parrots fly in and out of the treetops.'' Henley's verdant landscapes and tropical-hued animals are outlined in white, giving her lustrous illustrations an almost electric quality. Each of these sunny books depicts an invitingly tranquil, colorful day. Ages 2-6. (May)
