It is a board book, very good quality paper, and no glossiness, hence the pages are easy to be viewed by babies/toddlers. The pages are bonded well, has round edges and safe for kids.
My 4 month old baby loves to hear the rhyming and giggles all along, especially with the "Squash and Squeeze".
A cute little read, that gives you the opportunity to add your little imagination, by making the animals' and their actions seem more fun!

The pictures in this book are really nice and it’s fun to point out all the different farm characters. The rhyming is good too and the repetitive stanzas at the end of each section are good for young children who are learning to read.
The story isn’t one of the best in the Julia Donaldson collection in my eyes; I much prefer the funnier books or those with more of a plot. That said it does have a moral to it - be happy with what you’ve got - which is a good lesson.

Alex Schefflers artwork is beautiful complements the stories perfectly. The same characters often pop up in different books, whether it be the Gruffalo Child’s stick man in his own story or simply a squirrel and a frog. This helps my son who is fifteen months old develop his own narrative. He does not understand the words I am reading but gets plenty from the rhythm and my intonation whilst building his own story and understanding from the pictures, he is always pointing different characters out to me or finding them when I ask where they are. He loves books and I think that these books enhance a joy of reading and learning. He brings the books to me time and time again.
This book has wonderful rhymes and a clever twist. Interestingly, it is not a personal favourite Julia Donaldson book for me. It is still excellent and is one of my partner's favourites. My little boy loves having her read it to him.
