Farm animals come to the rescue in this delightful picture book series for kids. The Greenstalks have the cleverest animals around.

Beginning with Chickens to the Rescue, The Barnyard Rescue series from author and illustrator John Himmelman features simple, laugh out loud text and expressive pencil and water-color illustrations that’s perfect for young readers.
