Title: Farmyard Beat
Author: Lindsey Craig
The nighttime antics of toe-tapping, happily dancing sheep, cows and pigs result in the emission of raucous animal noises that eventually awaken Farmer Sue.
Author Lindsey Craig teams up with Arthur creator and bestselling artist Marc Brown in a toe-tapping farmyard dance-a-thon—perfect for toddler and preschooler read-alouds. As soon as the sun goes down, the animals are up! (“Sheep can’t sleep. Sheep can’t sleep. Sheep can’t sleep ‘cause they got that beat!”) Before long, there’s a giant farmyard dance party, complete with funny animal sounds. But what happens when all the racket wakes up Farmer Sue? Here’s a colorful bedtime story that begs to be read aloud.
