7 Farm Books for Preschoolers to Inspire Sheer Enjoyment

So I’ve started something new: setting an alarm clock, just as if I have my very own rooster in my room. I have not been taking care of my body, and last week I surely felt it when I threw out my back going on a walk. Like seriously, a step was all it took to throw my body out of whack. So now, I’m waking up early to work out and stretch. That way, I don’t feel like I have to stop what I’m doing in the middle of the day to work out. Plus, it gives me more time to work on something amazing for you, like some excellent farm books for preschoolers that you can read aloud to your class.

Farm Lesson plans

Berenstain Bears Down on the Farm

By Stan & Jan Berenstain

We started off the week by reading Berenstain Bears Down on the Farm by Stan & Jan Berenstain. I love how this book captures all of the chores that farmers do in a day, from milking the cow to picking vegetables to feeding the chickens. Surprisingly, what actually happens on a farm is a topic not found in many farm books for kids, and that is why I love this book.


Click, Clack, Peep!

By Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin

There’s a new baby duck on the farm who is keeping all of the farm animals awake at night! The barnyard animals try everything to get the new baby to sleep before just going outside to get some peace and quiet. Finally, duck comes up with a plan to get the baby duck to sleep in Click, Clack, Peep! by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.


Mrs. Wishy Washy

By Joy Cowley

Mrs. Wishy Washy loves to keep her farm animals clean, even though they don’t necessarily love bath time. We read several Mrs. Wishy Washy books by Joy Cowley this week. I just love the simplicity of this one!


Also, we set up a ridiculously fun sensory experience with muddy animals that the kiddos had to scrub, which went perfectly with this farm book for preschoolers.


No Sleep for the Sheep

Farm Fine Motor Activity

Next up was No Sleep for the Sheep by Karen Beaumont. The only thing the sheep wants is a good night’s rest, but the farm animals keep coming into the barn and interrupting this sheep’s sleep. Each animal gets bigger and louder and unfortunately, there’s no sleep for the sheep.


The Little Red Hen

By Paul Galdone

We finished up the week with a classic tale called The Little Red Hen by Paul Galdone. The little red hen gets no help from the dog, cat, or mouse when planting and harvesting the wheat. She gets no help when making flour and baking a cake. But who wants to help her eat the cake? You guessed it! Such a great lesson for anyone, but especially for my little cake lover.
