Summary: Funny farm animals are in, over, and on the farm… and out, under, around, and off too! Lift flaps show the opposite placement as these four friends star in three stories. 1. Chicken can’t get into her coop until she orders everyone else out. 2. When Chicken can’t get over or under the fence, Cow shows her the way around. 3. The friends are on a tractor until it starts to go and throws them off.
Literary Merit: Short and simple phrases tell the story with a lot of picture support.
Kid Appeal: Interactive Fun! Farm Animals! Cute Illustrations! Silly situations!
