Sophia: This is a story about a girl who wants to be a farmer and her cat named Dusty. I liked learning about life on a farm. I think it would be fun to live on a farm. I would like to learn how to milk a cow, but only if I could wear gloves! My favorite picture in the story is when the cow is licking the kitty. I like all the farm animals the best. This was an easy book to read.
Madeline: This is a story about a girl named Nancy and her yellow cat Dusty. I like this book because it can teach children what farms are like and if they ever wanted to be a farmer when they grow up. My favorite part was when Nancy squirted milk into Dusty’s mouth. I think it would be really fun to live on a farm because I could care for hens and pigs and milk all the cows, my favorite part what be to take care of all the calves and feed them. I would give this book one hundred stars if I could. I think I would read this book again and again and again. I think this book is really easy to read. My favorite picture is when Nancy’s two neighbors were up in a tree. I think the cover looks nice as well. I think maybe I would like to be a farmer when I grow up.
Both of us highly recommend “If I Were a Farmer: Nancy’s Adventure” by Gordon W. Fredrickson.
