Best of 2011- #4- Farmyard Beat

Farmyard Beat
Farmyard Beat by Lindsay Craig, Illustrated by Marc Brown is rhyming recollection of bedtime in a barnyard. The animal are having trouble sleeping. They would rather be dancing to "that beat". With a repetative, almost singable rhythm and rhyme, Craig introduces each animal with the animal's corresponding sound. The illustrations are big and bold, which make this a great choice for even the littlest learners. My boys beg for this book at bedtime. We have so much fun chanting this book. Your kids will be sure to join in and love it too.

I originally posted this review on October 18, 2011 along with our farm field trip and farm play scene.

Here's Where I am sharing:


  1. We got this after your previous post about it and love it!

  2. OH ... I did not know about this one. I just pulled Dancing Feet today for the kindergarten teachers who are talking about motion in illustration. Will totally have to check it out!
