In! Over! And On! (The Farm) by Ethan Long

Published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Summary:  A pig, chicken, goat, and cow explore the concepts of in, out, over, under, around, on, and off in three very short cartoon-style stories.  Each story includes one lift-the-flap.  40 pages; ages 3-6.

Pros:  This would be a fun read-aloud to young children as well as a good first book for emergent readers to try on their own.  The cartoon illustrations are sure to be enjoyed, and lifting the flaps is always fun.  Also a good introduction to the concepts listed above.

Cons:  Those flaps may not survive long if this is a library purchase.
