Sculpted from vibrantly colored, extremely pliable modeling material, Kim Fernandes’ imaginative farmyard scenes ebulliently depict a mouse, a dog, a pig, a sheep, and other animals playing together. Spiderwebs in the barn, crops sprouting in the field, are examples of the highly defined details that fill the joyful three-dimensional art. Eugeneie Fernandes, the illustrator’s mother, provides the text of simply structures rhymes, which, with each turn of the page, induct a new animal into the action and invite youngsters to respond aloud ? From calling out each animal’s distinctive sound to discovering the crawling ladybug, mouse’s straw hat, and the diminutive toys the young rodent takes to bed, children will find much to like in this pleasing picture book.
