59. Down by the Barn
(Amazon Children’s Publishing, May 2014)
Will Hillenbrand (Preschool-Grade 2)

Farm animals climb on board a tractor traveling through the farm and then greet children getting off a school bus so they can all settle down and listen to a scarecrow read a story to them.


"The bright and cheerful illustrations feature a cast of endearing animals and lots of humorous details. The exuberant art, combined with the pattern and repetition in the text, makes this a perfect read aloud."


School Library Journal


"Fifteen years after his Down by the Station, Hillenbrand offers a cheerful companion book that transplants the familiar nursery rhyme to a rural setting."


Publishers Weekly


"This exuberant companion to Hillenbrand's Down by the Station... will garner as many fans as the first... There is much to keep children entertained, in addition to the large, bright mixed-media illustrations... Fun!"
