By the big red barn
In the great green field,
There was a pink pig who was learning to squeal.

So begins the joyous portrait of a day on a busy farm, where the horses, sheep, geese, goats, field mice, chickens, and cows seem to have the run of the place - together with plenty of noisy offspring.

But in this story the children are away
Only the animals are here today.

And just look how much excitement the children are missing!
