There is frenzy in the farmyard when the animals see a sign "Searching for a Farm Yard Idol" nailed to the cowshed door. They set off for the auditions, keen to show off their talents and support one another. But will all the judges be impressed? The Farmyard Idol is a "Read and Colour" book ideal for reading aloud. Perfect for a chorus of classroom voices The illustrations are only partially colored leaving the child with the option to complete the art work. Comes with a series of four tear-out postcards for children to colour and post.
