9780140542875: Benjamin's Barn (Picture Puffin)

It's really just an ordinary barn, home to a horse, cows, sheep, and all the other animals you'd expect to find. But with a little imagination it isn't hard to fill up Benjamin's barn with a flock of pterodactyls, a rhinoceros, a pirate ship, a brass band and even an entire royal family.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- One rainy spring day, a small boy named Benjamin sets off for his big red barn, where he spends hours with the flesh-and-blood animals of the farm and the exotic creatures of his imagination. Thus, an elephant and a newborn lamb share shelter from the storm, while a rhinoceros and a billy goat cavort in the hay. When sunlight breaks through the clouds and Benjamin's father comes to take him home, all that is left along with the barnyard animals is a princess' golden crown. The rhyming text has a comforting circular flow, well-suited to Benjamin's flight of fancy and subsequent return to reality. Jeffers' lifelike illustrations enhance the theme, lending as much reality to the leathery texture of a pterodactyl's wing as to the downy softness of goose feathers. Literal-minded children may question the undifferentiated juxtapostion of the fantastic with the real, but most will understand an imagination as big and wide as a barn, with room enough for pachyderms and pirates as well as pigeons. --Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library
