KIRKUS REVIEW

This agreeable but blandly depicted visit begins when the ""I,"" a little boy, arrives at the farm to see the farmer milking the cows and then taking them out to the field. (""A young calf came right up to me and said 'Moo.' I said 'Moo' back to her."") Nearby are some sheep and goats (""I gave them armfuls of grass to eat"") and in the sty a mother pig with eleven babies (""I took some vegetables to the pigs""). Then ""In the evening the farmer brought the cows in to be milked again"" and the sheep, goats, and pigs settle down to sleep. That's all: any day on any farm--aimed at the very young for whom just being there will suffice.
