Getting along isnít always easy. Sometimes we might start to feel a little annoyed by those we spend our time with. Thatís understandable Ė but make sure thatís all it is, and donít let your differences drive you apart.
Sunnybrook Farm is bustling with animal activity, but it is also the scene of some unhappy friendships. Francis, a calm and fair Saint Bernard, must keep the peace between Mother Hen and the other animals. Mother Hen decides that the farm animals Ė the chicks, pigs, cows, sheep, and others Ė cannot be mixing with one another. Itís up to Francis to show her the error of her ways Ė and the harm that can be done with such a mindset.
Francis and His Barnyard Friends is an enlightening story that will teach young readers the importance of cultural diversity and the value of friendship.
