This charming book tells the story of the scarecrow at Apple Tree Farm and exactly what makes it so good!

The illustations are bright and engaging; my children love them. We spend lots of time talking about them, thanks to the plentiful details. My toddlers really enjoy hunting for the little yellow duck on each page; it keeps them occupied for ages.

I really like the design of the Farmyard Tales series: the text is split into two level; the top one is short and simple and the bottom is longer and more complex. They are designed with young readers in mind, they begin with the simpler text then move on to the more advanced lines as they gain confidence. I've found the format works just as well for reading out loud for toddlers: the top line is great for very young children or when they are struggling with attention. The bottom lines expand and lengthen the story - great for when they're older or with better attention spans.

There is a lot of longevity in this book and is one we will be returning to for years.
