Mr.s Wishy-Washy’s Farm is a classic farm animal books for kids. In this story, the animals revolt against Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s baths and leave the farm. You have to read the story to find out what crazy shenanigans the animals run into after they leave the farm!

Little Blue Truck is one of the most popular books in our house. The cool illustrations and rhyming words really make this story fun to read. And with a whole series after this one, kids love getting to know the characters more and more!

The Cow Said Neigh! is a fun and silly book about farm animals who wish they were another farm animal. Kids will enjoy the rhyming and learn that each of us (animals included) has strengths we should embrace.
