A very fun activity book. The read along pictures between the text make it easy for young children to engage when reading the stories. Fun activities in between make it a wonderful book for little ones of any reading level.
A very good book that is easily recommended.

Very cute book. This book not only tells a fun story, but it's also interactive. You can encourage your little one to trace paths the animals take as well as speak like the animals. The activities are mostly easy for small ones, but the smallest toddlers will have to use their cognitive thinking to achieve success. Great tool for kids!

A fun story for young ones to identify farm animals and their surroundings.  This book helps to teach problem solving too.

This book seems like it would be a cute children’s book.  However it was not available for download or on my NetGalley shelf app so I’m giving it 3 stars just because.

Board Book for young readers that will introduce them to the love reading. With words/and pictures you can read together. The farm is a great discovery for babies and reading. With little Goat and mother Goat has to find her, it is adventure in reading. Each page is interactive and will make a special time for baby and parents.

A special thank you to Clavis Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review

What a perfect book for toddlers. This book will help them learn to identify objects, and group them together! Sweet and simple.

Thanks a lot to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read a copy of the book, to the author as well.
It is a story on a farm with many, many animals and life on it. Soon, two new animals will arrive to the herd (to the farm).


I liked the story. Besides that every children's story I read leaves me with something to learn, either for my improvement in English or a learning (moral) I learned such simple words that I felt so stupid for not knowing them.

An interactive read, this board book will give you many hours of fun with your little fellow readers. They will work on developing their language and observation skills.

I adore interactive books! Little goat by Marja Baeten helps little ones read along with pictures tucked into the text. Throughout, we also have pages of puzzles and games to play with Annemiek Borsboom's bright, crisp illustrations. A wonderful busy book to add to our bag when going out.

I received an e-arc in exchange for an honest review. 

This past couple of weeks I've been on the lookout for books I could read to my goddaughter or the kids in my kindergarten. This book isn't just for reading, it's for playing games and with the active participation of the children. The storyline is actually pretty basic, but in a good way that it still keeps kids entertained but doesn't dwell on details too much taking away the focus fom the tasks accompanying the story.

The artwork was really cute and visually pleasing, with great color palette and without an overly cluttered layout.

I liked the different types of tasks the kids had to complete and how they targeted different areas of verbal, visual and mental development of children. This book entertains and teaches kids simultaneously. 

I am planning on using this at my class in the upcoming weeks.

A sweet, fun and interactive read for youngsters. Vibrant pictures, and a lovely tone. A bit of a longer book for the age it appears to be geared to, and a bit repetitive- but still a great learning read.

This is a fun interactive book that wee ones will love.  It is a Rebus book.  What is that you may ask?  A rebus book, or picture reader, tells its story using a combination of text and small pictures or icons. The pictures represent characters or key elements in the story and are used throughout the book in place of the corresponding word/name. This clever book is designed with mazes, puzzles, opportunities for discussion and problem solving situations.  

The illustrations are colourful and the characters are adorable.  The author includes three scenarios with a farm theme which children will love.  First, little Goat is lost and Mommy Goat searches for her precious baby all over the farm. Secondly, new animals arrive. Toddlers are introduced to them and are able to learn the sounds that they make and categorize which ones are long and short-big and small.  In the last mini story Little Goat and her friends help a small kitten get out of a tree.  This sweet book is not only entertaining for the age level but is also educational. I know little ones will want to return again and again to enter into the playfulness that this book has to offer.

Little Goat. Playing at the Farm
by Marja Baeten
Illustrated by Annemiek Borsboom
Pub Date August 10, 2021

Thoughts: 
An interesting take on linking pictures with words. The book is colorful and appears it would be engaging for older preschoolers. However, I would target this book for 36 months and up with the number of words on a page. The book is also set up to look like an app with the ability to tap the sound of the animals at one point and a short matching game based on animal characteristics, and a maze at the end.

Description:
A many-sided board book providing toddlers with a lot of fun. For little nature researchers ages 30 months and up, with a focus on language development.

Little Goat is out having adventures on the farm. Now she’s lost, and Mommy Goat has to find her.

Also, there are new animals coming to the farm. And can Little Goat and friends help Little Cat to get out of the tree?

With each of those three farm stories comes a large picture puzzle and a fun puzzle you can solve together.

this book was great and fun and perfect for young kids. 

the interactive games for fun, and it would be so helpful for someone younger. also easy for the parents to read with their child and help them. the pictures were really nicely drawn. 

this book is also really good if you want a child to be engaged while reading, especially if you are teaching a class full of younger kids, it would keep their attention grasped and they would have a blast!

I really liked this! I think little kids will absolutely love this, the little activities were fun to do, even for me and i’m most definitely not a child, so that says a lot about this book.

It was a fun story and it worked very well. The drawings that are included are also very pretty and I quite liked them. 

Overall, I think a great choice for them, will entertain them and make them think and have some fun.

I have a niece that I think would benefit from this book! I love that the author mixed in pictures of the animals in the sentences, so that it would help the kids learn. I also loved all of the questions asked so the kids can learn from those too!

Love love love this book! Because it has a little of everything it could be used with a range of ages. My son is 1 and would enjoy imitating the animal noises and looking at the illustrations. I could also see early readers in kindergarten, first or second grade gaining confidence by using the pictures inserted in the text to help them read. The mini-games the author includes like the hidden pictures and maze engage the reader. As a teacher I appreciate the open ended questions. Bravo!
