Book 90 - Checkers and Dot on the Farm #100daysofbooks (verdict: high contrast rhyme)

Day 90. Checkers and Dot on the Farm appears to be one of a number of Checkers and Dot books, all of which feature high contrast (black and white) illustrations (which are supposed to be engaging for babies). The text is rhyming with animal noises (as might be expected on a farm). The illustrations are the most striking part of this - as an adult I find it kind of boring to look at, especially as the figures are so simple (contrast with The House in the Night earlier in our series which has very detailed illustrations), but kids may see it differently.

Master A's verdict: Paid attention, which is a win at the moment.
