Amazon.com Review

We would follow Stephen Huneck's black Labrador, Sally, anywhere--to the beach, to the mountains, and certainly to the farm. The Sally books are wonderfully witty glimpses into the simple psyche of a dog, where exciting new smells and tastes reign supreme. Sally first meets the golden Lab Molly, and after a comical round of introductory sniffing, her new friend proceeds to introduce her to Bessie the cow, who squirts them with milk. The doggy duo then eats like pigs, horses around, plows a field, and narrowly escapes a goosing. Each oversized illustration explodes with generous, boldly colored woodcut prints, as Huneck artfully captures the gorgeous striped geometry of farmland and fences--along with amusing canine antics. Simple sentences in a large clear font (designed by the artist himself) ensure smooth sailing and happy endings for early readers, but adults will enjoy the dry humor of these books just as much as kids will. (Ages 2 to 6) --Karin Snelson

From Publishers Weekly

Energetic woodcuts and straightforward text combine for this trip to the farmyard with the charming black Lab that debuted in Sally Goes to the Beach Sally Goes to the Farm by Stephen Huneck. At home in the heartland, a country dog introduces Sally to her farm friends.

Delightful! Colorful! Enchanting! Stephen Huneck knows exactly what dogs think and what they love to do! Sally has certainly been on some wonderful adventures, to the beach and to the mountains, but going to the farm is just the most humorous and delightful story yet. The artist's charm and wit is magical. Everyone will love this book! And the woodcut prints that illustrate the books are absolutley fabulous! Anyone with a love for dogs, colorful art, or humor should buy this book (...)

This book is for dog lovers and kids. Its great pictures and simple phrases exactly describes what our black lab does (right down to the 'worried' look on her face!), and therefore we found this book very funny. However we have shown this book to non dog lovers. They just give polite smiles/puzzled looks and change the subject!! So I guess if you know what catagory your in you'll know whether or not this book is for you!

I introduced my 4-5 year old preschool students to Sally while doing the pet/vet theme in the classroom. The pictures in Stephen Huneck's books are large and clear and the text is easy to understand. The students were so surprised to see Sally again in the winter story and now in this farm book. I can't wait to read them the next one before summer-Sally Goes to the Beach!

I come from a family of dog lovers and the Sally books are hands down the best. They are beautifully illustrated and the story lines truly capture the thinking and behaviors of man's best friend. Stephen Huneck was a genius and it saddens me that he is no longer with us. I hope his friends and family know how much his stories have touched the lives of me and my children. Buy these books and share the joy and love of having a relationship with a pet with your children.

My kids love all of the Sally books. We read them over and over every night.
They really feel like they are traveling with Sally wherever she goes.
