Review: Blueberry Farm

It’s going to be another beautiful day on Blueberry Farm.

Meet Henna, Ziggs and Moe as they wake up to farm life. Greet the sun, say good morning to Misty the donkey, check for eggs and hang out with Clover the horse.

In this simple and heart-warming story from much loved author-illustrator Stephen Michael King, feel love and warmth as you turn each page.

I dare you not to smile as you read this book, as you explore the GORGEOUS illustrations. It’s just a really happy story about family and animals and being outside. It’s sparkles and sunshine and a wonderful loving read perfect for pre-schoolers.

I adore the intro page at the beginning that introduces readers to everyone who lives on the farm. It creates a great interactive element to the story because you can search for each character as you move through the book. A search-and-find in picture book form.

But there’s even more details to find. I had great joy discovering the farm is in fact in Australia, without ever being told. You’ll see what I mean as you explore the book.

Blueberry-sweet and full of heart, you’ll love visiting Blueberry Farm.
