Adventures of Rebekah: On The Farm

For a long time now Rebekah has been interested in all things farm. Farm animals, books about farms, looking for big red barns, tractors, corn...the girl loves corn on the cob! (Cut it off and she wants nothing to do with it...oh, the life of a two year old!) We are excited to start our own adventure on our own little farm someday soon, but for now we read about farms and play with her plastic farm animals. 

One of our new favorite books is about a farm. And I love it because it is a "good-night" book. That's what I call books that are perfect for just before bedtime. It's called Night Night, Farm by Amy Parker. This 20 page board book is recommended for ages 4-8, but Rebekah is 2 and loves it. It is published by Tommy Nelson, and like all of our TN books it is super sturdy and holds up well to the not-so-gentle page turns of a pre-reader.


This sweet story visits all the animals on the farm as they are getting ready for bed. Each page is a different animal with a good night rhyme (we love rhyming books) and each of the animals says night-night in their own "language". Reinforcing the sounds that each animal makes. I'm always looking for books that are fun and educational at the same time.

Perhaps Rebekah's favorite thing is that on each page there are 2 mice that are making their good night rounds on the farm. She loves looking and finding the mice on each page and seeing what they are doing. At the end all the animals are asleep in the barn and we like to practice saying good night to each of them in their own animal language. 

This is a wonderful farm story and would be a great addition to any child's library! 

If you would like to win a free copy of Night Night, Farm for you own collection, or to give away as a gift, just comment here or on my Instagram picture of the book (here) before Friday. 

I received a copy of this book for free from Tommy Nelson Publishers, and like always the opinions here are all my own.
