Usborne Review: The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales

The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales
by Stephen Cartwright & Heather Amery
328 pages. Hardcover. 

From Usborne: "This delightful book contains all 20 of the popular Farmyard Tales stories. Young children will love Stephen Cartwright's charming illustrations of life on Apple Tree Farm, and the gently amusing stories of Mrs. Boot, the farmer, her children Poppy and Sam, and their animals, Rusty the dog, Curly the pig and Woolly the sheep."

My thoughts: Apparently this is an Usborne book that's been around for awhile. Most of the people I've talked to in my parties who actually have heard of Usborne before will ask me "Do they still have that book of farmyard tales?" It is considered a dual-reader, which means there is a simple line of text along the top of the page for a child to read, then longer, more descriptive sentences on the bottom. The story could feasibly be told by a child only reading the top line, or a parent and child could alternate lines and tell the longer story. It also comes with a CD, with a man narrating each story (in a British accent, remember this was made in the UK!) along with sound effects.
