Using a formula similar to its predecessors, Cat and Dog, Van Fleet's interactive board book identifies farm animals using simple, playful rhymes: "Mommy cow,/ Baby calf,/ Shaggy daddy bull./ Moo cow,/ Milk the cow—/ grab the udder, pull!" (The farmer's hands milk the cow at the pull of a tab, while a cat turns its mouth toward the spraying milk.) Textures—a woolly sheep, a duck's downy chest feathers—provide a touch-and-feel aspect, while flaps and pop-ups make this a playful excursion. Ages 2–up. (Aug.)
