By the big red barn
In the great green field,
There was a pink pig
Who was learning to squeal.

There were horses and sheep and goats and geese -- and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn. In joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown's simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

But Big Nutbrown Hare, who can reach farther and hop higher, loves him back just as much. Well then Little Nutbrown Hare loves him right up to the moon, but that’s just halfway to Big Nutbrown Hare’s love for him.

This book takes learning the ABCs to a whole new level with its thick, cut-out letters and a guessing game that accompanies each page.

Watch your kinesthetic little one not only learn the alphabet, but also feel the shape of each letter and engage with the imaginative and vibrant images by Peskimo. Note: illustrations have a retro feel, with imperfect variations in color and texture.
