Does your child like farms and barnyard animals? Read these children’s books about farms to tie in to nursery songs or a trip to the farm.
If you’re a parent, there’s a good chance you’ve bleated, moo’d, and baa’d about a thousand times by now.
After all, farms and farm animals remain a big hit with kids. They’re in every nursery rhyme and preschool curriculum. Your kids probably have a toy, coloring book, or puzzle about farm animals. They even make their way into birthday party themes.
And of course, we find them throughout many children’s books about farms.
My kids and I like to visit a nearby family farm where my boys can see animals they don’t get to see often: pigs, horses, cows, chickens, and goats to name a few. You can also visit the fields to pick seasonal fruit and vegetables and celebrate events like egg hunts and pumpkin patches.
We also love going to our local farmer’s market every week where we get to buy and eat fresh produce.
And a wonderful way to tie a trip to the farm back home? Through books. We often borrow children’s books about farms after a trip to one. Reading books can be a fun way to review all the animals we had just seen.
Below are my top picks of children’s books about farms. Hopefully, you’ll find a few selections from this farm book list to read, whether you visit a farm or simply sing nursery songs about them:
