Serious Farm

Serious Farm
by Tim Egan

Genre: Picture Book

Synopsis:  Farmer Fred never smiled much.  "Farmin' is a serious business," he'd say.  "Nothin' funny about corn."  And so life on his farm was pretty serious.  None of the animals laughed or even smiled.

But everyone has to laugh sometime, and finally the animals decide to leave Serious Farm in search of a more cheerful place to chuckle and graze. Will the animals find a livelier home, and will Farmer Fred ever lighten up?  Tim Egan's seriously silly Serious Farm is a story for all who need a little more laughter in their lives.

Review: This was a really cute story about animals on a farm who decide that the farm is too serious so they come up with a plan to make the farm a funnier place.  My kids really enjoyed this book and reading all the antics that the animals tried to make Farmer Fred laugh or smile.  They really liked the sheep wearing sunglasses with mustaches on!  I liked the quirky humor in this book and all the illustrations of the farm animals doing silly things.  I think I am going to have to check out other books by this author!

Rating: 5 stars
