The Animals of Farmer Jones by Leah Gale, illustrated by Richard Scarry
This Little Golden Book is a delightful and easy to read poem. Your children will want to hear it over and over. The pictures of the animals and the repetition of the sounds the animals make will be enjoyed by all. Let them help you read along.
The sheep say “Ba-a-a, ba-a-a-a”- “we’re waiting for our supper”, and the cat says “me-o-w, me-o-w”-“my dish is empty”. Chickens say “cluck”, ducks “quack, quack”, but where is Farmer Jones? Pigs “oink, cows “moo” and the dog “wuffs”, but where is Farmer Jones?
“Six o’clock!” Farmer Jones announces it is “supper time!” and he goes to get the food for the animals. He feeds all the animals and the animals all thank him and then because he is hungry too he heads in for his own supper.
Note: All Little Golden Books are from my personal library.
Little Golden Books have been available since 1942. Originally they were produced to make high-quality children’s books affordable to the average American family. They were initially priced at just twenty-five-cents each. These sturdy, colorful books appealed to children and adults alike. They introduced us to new friends such as The Poky Little Puppy , The Tawny Scrawny Lion and The Saggy Baggy Elephant. They celebrated with universal themes such as the need to feel at home in the world while we enjoyed Seven Little Postman and Johnny’s Machines. They helped us understand what might be happening at home The New Baby and Busy Timmy. If you grew up with Little Golden Books you probably loved them all.
Share them today with your children and grandchildren and relive the magic.
