£6.99   paperback  Firetree Books (2016)

A Visit to City Farm by Verna Wilkins, illustrated by Karin Littlewood Beautiful, vibrant illustrations depict the modern multicultural classroom.
 
The journeys in this picture book will keep the reader engaged throughout. The children of Rainbow Class walk along a busy road to take an underground train. They are off on an exciting day out. Meet alpacas and llamas, pigs and ponies and so much more in this city farm surrounded by skyscrapers! True diversity in all its various forms.
 
This book was made with the children of Chalkhill Primary School, Wembley. Year 5 children helped develop the story, choosing the characters’ names and writing poems for the book. They were involved at every stage of production, from the initial raw story through the edited, illustrated book. The setting is a real London city farm that nestles below the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf. The beautiful illustrations are by Karin Littlewood.
