Book of the Week: There's a Cow in the Cabbage Patch

This book continues E's fascination with all things animal. I like it mainly because of the illustrations, which are actually photographs of farm yard scenes made entirely from felt and embroidery. The story itself is not particularly complex; it's a litany of different animals winding up in places around the farm where they shouldn't be. Some nice, if simple, rhyme and the repetition "what shall we do?"

The answer:

(I am really quite enamoured with this page and may attempt to replicate it in felt, either for E or for whichever friend/relative has the next baby!)

Heya, be honoured! I dragged myself out of Blogless-land for Book of the Week!

I love the idea of the felt creation! I've been meaning to do a Hooray for Fish picture for LB since before he was born, which is gradually getting too baby-ish for him :(
