Big Red Barn, by Margaret Wise Brown

big red barnThis is a wonderful pre-school read aloud.  The rhyming is very nice as are the illustrations.  It give you a great way to talk about farms (I work in an urban school) and to interact with students as they “help” me make farm noises.  Best of all, the book ends in such a peaceful way that all those wiggly bodies settle down and are ready for another book.

Synopsis: A day begins on a farm.  The people are away, so only animals are there to play.  There are horses, donkeys, roosters, hens, sheep, goats, mice, bats, cats, and even a scarecrow.  They all live and sleep in a big red barn.
