A Flower's Life
by Violet, a pig
My name is Violet, and I am a flower:
My bed is made of grass.
My hooves are planted firmly in the dirt.
I perk up like a daffodil after it rains,
And I smell sweet, like a lily.
(I take a sunbath nearly every day!)
I must be a flower;
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to roll in the mud.
You'll be delighted to meet the animals as they talk about their lives in their very own creative verse. This charming book will introduce the reader to a wide variety of farm animals and their interesting personalities. You will meet Maya the cow, Mayfly the rooster, J.D. the piglet, Gabriella the bantam chicken, Clarabell the goat, several adorable ducklings, Ramsey the ram, Whisper the turkey, Bonnie the donkey, Violet the pig, Ari and Alicia the baby goats, Whitaker the calf, Diego the duck, Hilda the ewe, and Cece and Barnaby, the rabbits.
The artwork is very appealing and is sure to please the little ones whom, I'm sure, will treat you to many imaginative animal sounds.Read more ›
