What's happening tonight on the farm? A poetry slam in the barn. All are invited to hear and be heard.
What I thought: Hilarious! Ever since Cronin's farm books came on the scene, books about farm animals have become increasingly popular. This one doesn't miss. I loved haring all the animals' poems. My favorite was Cow's (excuse me, Bovina's). I also liked seeing the animals' personalities develop. I hope we'll see more of these barnyard friends.
Story Time Ideas: Would be great for introducing kids to the concept of poetry slams. Pair with Cronin's books for a fun story time.
