The theme for this group of our books is farm animals and farm life. It links to the 2012 Australian Year of the Farmer .
This list comes from our bookshelf, going from the simplest to more complex books. Each link is to a review about the book with some ideas for using it to explore science.
For each book, take time to explore the illustrations and implications for getting to know the nature that it holds. Don’t restrict yourself to reading a book only once, or fully each time, or in exactly the same way each time. Take note of what works best with your child and repeat that! Enjoy the richness of these farm and bush-based books!
