Does your child like farms and farm 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.
Every year, my family and I visit a nearby farm where my boys are able to 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.
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 books from this list to read, whether you visit a farm or simply sing nursery songs about them:
