We love Rod Campbell’s Dear zoo, so when I spotted oh dear! in the sale in our local book shop, I quickly snapped up a copy.
Buster is staying on his grandma’s farm when one morning she sends him to collect the eggs for breakfast. The only problem is Buster seems to have forgotten which animal lays eggs. So he visits various farm animals until he remembers that he will find eggs in the hen house.
There are lots of opportunities to learn about farm animals, such as what noises they make and where they live on a farm (hen house, sty, barn etc). We love this book already and just like dear zoo, I can see us reading it for many years to come.
This week I am linking up with Carie at Space for the butterflies and Damson lane. Please do pop other to their blogs by clicking on the buttons below to link up what you’ve been reading with your children or to get some ideas.
