This is the best book ever!,
This review is from: Punk Farm (Hardcover)
This is quite positively one of the best children's picture books ever! I bought it first whilst on holiday in Seattle and I just in love with it. When I took it back to my kids at school (I'm a pre school teacher) they too fell in love the characters and of course loved the song.
Jarrett is an absolute genius and the subsequent music tracks you can download are amazing. We regularly rock out in class and read the books. We also made out own punk farm band with cardboard bass and guitar, my old keyboards and mic and we used upturned bowls for the drum kit. Over a year after I introduced the children to Punk Farm and they are still requesting it regularly.
As a rocker myself, I love the fact that the children now want to rock out with me. I got them into kiddie punk and I hope it stays with them as they grow up!
I even dressed up as sheep from the band on World Book Day last year, which the children found hilarious.
I will be buying punk farm (as I did for this particular child) for any of my children that leave school and any children i know through friends and family. It is genius and to be honest, I long for a new Punk Farm book. 2 is not enough!!!
