One day, while he was feeding them breakfast, Farmer John mentioned that his birthday was coming up soon. The animals were excited to hear about it! They wanted to do something special for their beloved farmer.

As they were all gathered together in the barn discussing ideas on what they could do for him, the cow suggested throwing a big party! The chickens agreed that they could bring eggs for breakfast while the pigs offered to clean up their pen without being asked.

The goats got creative and decided they would bake a cake from scratch but realized they didn’t have any flour or sugar. “Well,” said one goat slyly,“we can make it out of hay instead!” Everyone laughed at this silly idea but thought it might just work!

Finally, the horses volunteered to take Farmer John on a ride around the farm so he could see how beautiful everything looked in springtime.

With all these plans in place, everyone felt very excited about making sure that Farmer John has an amazing birthday celebration!

The Morning Surprise

The next day, when Farmer John wakes up, he finds all his animal friends gathered around him. “Happy Birthday!” they shout in unison. Farmer John can’t help but smile from ear to ear.

As if that wasn’t enough, the animals had a few surprises planned for him too! The chickens had brought eggs for breakfast and the cows provided fresh milk for coffee. Even the pigs who are usually lazy about cleaning their pen had tidied it up without being asked!

But this was just the beginning of Farmer John’s big birthday surprise. After breakfast, the horses came over to take him on a ride around the farm as they sang happy birthday together at every step.

They galloped through fields of golden wheat and pastures full of fluffy sheep. They stopped by a pond where ducks quacked out their own version of ‘happy birthday.’ Then they went to see the bees buzzing busily in their hives making honey- which would soon be turned into delicious cookies or cakes!

Farmer John couldn’t believe how much love his animal friends were showing him today. He felt grateful and blessed to have such amazing creatures in his life.

As they reached back home after an exciting ride, all animals gathered around Farmer John again with beaming faces - excitedly waiting for what was coming up next!

Lunchtime Celebrations

The animals had been preparing for Farmer John’s birthday for days, and now it was time to celebrate! Everyone gathered at the barn where tables were set up with colorful flowers and balloons. The farm looked beautiful, and there was a sense of excitement in the air.

The goats had prepared a special surprise - a cake made entirely of hay! It may not have been a traditional cake, but it looked just as delicious. The other animals couldn’t wait to dig in!

As everyone settled down at their tables, Farmer John clapped his hands together excitedly. “Wow, this looks amazing!” he exclaimed. “Thank you all so much!”

The chickens passed around plates of eggs while the cows poured glasses of fresh milk. Even though they were on different diets, all the animals happily shared their food with each other.

Finally, it was time to cut the hay cake! With candles spelling out ‘Happy Birthday’ flickering in front of him, Farmer John took a deep breath before blowing them out.

As soon as he blew out the last candle, all the animals cheered loudly; happy that they could make such an important person like Farmer John feel so special on his big day!

Overall this chapter teaches children about teamwork and how working together can create something amazing – even if it’s not what we might expect like eating hay instead of traditional ingredients for making cakes!
