K-Gr 2—Matt and Tara, the owners of an organic farm, are the hosts as readers learn about goats, chickens, and turkeys. Fun facts-turkeys can see 100 yards away, chickens lay differently colored eggs, and goats can climb trees-will catch readers' attention. Each book opens with a photo of the featured animal, with its parts labeled. On each spread, a paragraph of text and a small photo face a full-page photo. There isn't enough information for reports, but children interested in a basic introduction to these farm animals might enjoy browsing through these titles.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
