The cover is probably the best part because it is a play on that painting of the man with the pitchfork and the woman both on the farm I liked the illustrations a lot and when the other animals laughed at the main character because he was taking care of the farm when usually humans do that I didn t like that it was called Funny Farm but the author never made reference to people or how it is funny.
Yes, it s a farm, but what makes this funny I like Mark Teague s illustrations a lot, but other than that this book is pretty weak.
Well, milking cows was the most funniest part I do love cows I didn t like the pig that was jumping in muddy puddles.
Today We DidEdward visits Hawthorne Farm for the first time His uncle, aunt and cousin show him how to help about the farm, by collecting eggs, feeding the pigs, painting the barn, and herding the sheep The fact that Edward and his family are dogs running a farm is only the first of many odd things at Hawthorne Farm Funny Farm is a simple story of a day on the farm, just that the farm is a little different to most The text was clear and easy to read, with just one sentence per scene great for younger children Each page was full of colourful and detailed illustrations full of interesting and unusual things.
My preschoolers thought Funny Farm was pretty good They liked all the strange things, such as the pigs playing on the swings, the bugs ploughing their own small field, and the sheep brushing their teeth at the water trough They laughed quite a lot when Edward got chased by the rooster and when he fell into the pig s food trough They are keen to read this book again.
Funny Farm is suitable for toddlers and preschoolers.
I was going to rate this book a 4, just because the illustrations are fabulous But the story has nothing to do with the title in my opinion A little dude, Edward, visits his aunt and uncle s farm.
