Children love books with animal sounds and like to make animal sounds themselves. This book follows a baby goat through a barnyard where he encounters other animals and their unique sounds. We chose this over other barnyard books because of the funny things going on in the pictures that are not mentioned in the words.

There are many barnyard animals in children's books and on children's toys. Every time you see a picture of an animal or an animal let your child know what sound it makes. For example, "Is that a cow over there? What does a cow say? Moooo."
