Sally the black Labrador has never been on a farm before, so she has a lot to learn. But with the help of a golden retriever named Molly, Sally takes to country life like a duck to water: she helps milk a cow, plough the fields, and eats fresh apple pie.

Booklist Review

PreS.^-Gr. 2. The text is spare, but the pictures say a lot, humorously recording a dog's visit to a farm. Sally the dog meets Molly, another dog whose farm provides a host of delights. They romp together, checking out Bessie the cow and eating alongside Penelope the pig. Rope tug-of-war and a ride on the tractor follow, and the day is capped off with a pie foolishly left within a dog's reach. The large pictures are simply composed and graphically crisp. Colored shapes defined with uncomplicated cross-hatching lead the eye unerringly from one bold spread to the next. Dog lovers and children will recognize fun when they see it--this is sure to raise chuckles all around. --Denise Wilms

Publisher's Weekly Review

Energetic woodcuts and straightforward text combine for this trip to the farmyard with the charming black Lab that debuted in Sally Goes to the Beach Sally Goes to the Farm by Stephen Huneck. At home in the heartland, a country dog introduces Sally to her farm friends. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-This book will delight fans of Huneck's earlier "Sally" titles. The spreads are large, visually interesting, and often humorous. The story follows the black Lab and her owner to the farm where she meets Molly, also a dog, and they explore sights, sounds, smells, and other animals. The humor and simple text are perfect for a read-aloud and are well matched to the bold woodcut illustrations, which have a folk-art quality. Huneck's distinct style is graphically pleasing, the design of the spreads is dramatic, and the pictures also tell the story.-JoAnn Jonas, Chula Vista Public Library, San Diego, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
