The Jolly Barnyard (Little Golden Book Classics)

by Annie North Bedford (Author) Tibor Gergely (Illustrator)

In this classic Little Golden Book from the illustrator of Tootle, The Little Red Caboose, and Scuffy the Tugboat, it's Farmer Brown's birthday, and the animals are deciding what they'll do for him on his special day.

"Cluck! I will give him eggs," said the hen. Said the rooster, "I'll wake him in the mornings, then." "Baa-aa, we'll give him wool," said the sheep. "For our fleece is soft and warm and deep."
