Baby MacDonald’s Farm

Instead of reading a book aloud, try singing a book aloud for a change. This durable board book presents the traditional children’s song, “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” with vivid illustrations and photos that take your child to Baby MacDonald’s farm. Kids love hearing animal sounds, and the repetition of the verse means it’s easy for them to sing—and moo—along, too, when they’re ready. It’s a great way to add variety to your usual reading routine.

Tie-in Activity: Talk to your child about the different places that animals live. What if Baby MacDonald had a jungle or a forest? Change the song a bit by adding a different location and other animals, so that your child can imitate wild animal sounds, too.
