Booklist - 07/01/2018 *Starred Review* Every full-color double-page spread glows with warmth as the rhyme begins: “Here is the barn / Hear the wind rattle / Open the door / And see all the cattle.” A huge red barn entices children to turn the page, where they see not only six cows but also two goats, six chicks and a mother hen, and a watchful cat peering out the window. Winter is coming, and it’s time for all the animals to move indoors. Scurrying field mice and trotting horses move inside, as the large illustrated fonts chorus, “squeak squeak” and “Neigh shiver shiver.” Jonathan the farmer welcomes a silky newborn calf into the world, where it rests cozily in the hay, surrounded by the barn animals, safe from the whistling “whooo” of the wind. All crowd together for a happy ending, secure from the rattling gusts and snowy cold. Observant children will love finding the different animals, from snuffling pigs to whizzing bats. Artwork in pencil, watercolor, gouache, and pastel helps to create the detailed world of the barn, a place of warmth and safety. The mist from the horses’ breath, and whoosh of the wind bending the grasses and swirling the manes make visible nature’s power. A glorious tribute to Brown’s timeless classic. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
