              A great new informative and fun colour reference book for all kids! Every child wants to learn about farms and farm animals. Big Farms, Little Farms is the latest in the Big & Little series. It takes children on a journey through all aspects of farming, from the smallest chickens... to the largest shire horses. It tells interesting facts about animals and breeds as well as explaining the different types of animal farming - cattle, pig, sheep and bird. Each breed is illustrated in colour and includes both famous examples such as the Hereford bull, the Shetland sheep, and Tamworth pig, alongside more unusual breeds. And of course no farm can do without a dog, so all the famous farming breeds are also included, from the English sheepdog to the Jack Russell Terrier. And alongside horse breeds we have donkeys. Aimed at young children (3-8), this is the ideal gift for the curious child.

Dog lovers will spend hours poring over these winsome illustrations. -- School Library Journal The previous, oversized edition of th...is popular book has been reduced to ideal bedtime reading size and likewise reduced in price.

Also included is a selection of purebreds not officially recognized by the American Kennel Club as well as some of the most popular designer dogs, such as the Labradoodle and Chiweenie. There are also breeds less familiar to North Americans but recognized by kennel clubs in other countries; for example, the Canadian Eskimo Dog and the Australian Silky Terrier. Jim Medway's color drawings are accurate and engaging. At the end of the book is an entertaining Puppy Identifier where children can test their ability to recognize the breed of 30 puppies. There is also a Dog Breed Fact Index with interesting trivia about all of the breeds. More than one-third of American households have a dog. With Big Dogs, Little Dogs, children and adults alike will enjoy learning and identifying the dogs that they encounter. It is fun and informative and it might instill a lifelong interest in man's best friend.
