Share this classic die-cut concept book at home or at circle time. Lois Ehlert, of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom fame, was a picture book genius.

"Brightness, boldness, and sturdiness combine with a basic concept and unique design to inspire children to beg for some scraps of colored paper to make their own animals." (School Library Journal)

"Like Color Zoo, an outstanding concept book." (Kirkus)

On this farm you can view animal ears and whiskers too. Lots of animals to be found, shapes and colors ail around. Look at beaks and snouts with me. Make some more for us to see.

“Like Color Zoo, an outstanding concept book.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Ehlert creates a playful menagerie from geometric graphics and overlays. The designs stack up to form stylized faces of barnyard animals, with changing combinations creating new faces as pages are turned.” — Booklist

"Through imaginative use of cutouts, Ehlert has created two books in one. Each recto page shows a barnyard animal—cow, chicken, rooster, duck—composed almost entirely of geometric shapes. Turn the page, and the verso shows one of those shapes cut out and labeled on a contrasting background. Ehlert's characteristically electric palette and her strong, sure sense of design make this a stimulating primer of basic shapes and familiar animals. The book will also encourage awareness of and experimentation with the ways shapes combine to form—or even simply suggest—the objects in our world." — Publishers Weekly
