A touch-and-feel book presents farm babies. Photos of a flock of ducklings, a foal, a puppy, a piglet and a lamb each appear on the right-hand page of a book sporting a substantially sized swatch of fabric for little ones to explore in an appropriate texture. On the facing page over a black background, the animals list their basic characteristics. The critters then share their iconic noises via speech bubbles. "I am very woolly and frisky and I say / 'baaa...baaa...baaa.' " While this offering is nothing new, and the touch-and-feel elements are not particularly varied, the photos of each creature are crystal clear and pleasingly fill the page. Pets, another title in the series, follows a nearly identical format right down to the die-cut hole on the cover, but in this title, such animals as a puppy, a parrot and a kitten are in the spotlight. With the bunny and lizard, the text calls attention to how the animals move (hopping and wriggling), which provides some nice variety from perennial animal-noise fare. All in all, a simple and satisfying multisensory experience. (Board book. 3 mos.-2). 10pg.
