About the Author

Merrily Kutner is the author of Z is for Zombie, which Booklist called "great for reading aloud." She wrote "Down on the Farm" for her daughter, who liked to prance around the house singing animal sounds. She encourages readers to sing out the lines of this book, too! Her home is California.

Will Hillenbrand has illustrated a wide range of picture books for children, including many he has written himself. Spring Is Here won the Please Touch Museum Book Award. Kite Day was proclaimed "a winner for story times" in a School Library Journal starred review. Off We Go! was declared "a winner all around" in a Kirkus starred review. Will lives with his wife, Jane Hillenbrand, in Ohio.

Praise For…

"a natural, bouncy read-aloud, particularly for preschool groups and one-on-one lap-reading interaction."—Kirkus Reviews
"The spirited but simple rhyming text showcases the varied sounds of familiar animals, and is perfect for the toddler set. Done in oils and inks, the action-packed cartoon artwork is rich, vivid, and charming. With its large-format illustrations, repeated refrain, and irresistible farmyard sounds, this book will make a great interactive read-aloud."—School Library Journal
"From sunup to sundown, this buoyant picture book introduces animals on the farm and offers opportunities for children to chime in on the chorus. . . . The bold, simplified forms are well suited to a very young audience, particularly in a group setting. . . . An amusing romp for young children."—Booklist
