for Little Factory
by Sarah Weeks
and Byron Barton
An original song by Sarah Weeks and Michael Abbott tells the story of a little factory that falls victim to its own success. Once it expands to such a point that it turns into a giant factory, the workers no longer want to work there because of all the smoke. Luckily for everyone involved, the man who runs the factory comes up with a solution that brings all the workers back-- he updates it to run on solar power in order to improve the working conditions. Byron Barton's boldly colored illustrations include enough heavy machinery to satisfy his diehard fans, even as they complement the sweet simplicity of Weeks's song. An accompanying CD-Rom includes both a fully animated version of the song, and an interactive game. (Ages 2-5)

There was a little man who ran a little factory. But as the factory grows bigger and bigger, the little workers begin to cough and choke on the smoke from the factory chimneys. It's up to the little man to save the day.
This one-of-a-kind picture book with CD-ROM keeps the little factory humming with an animated song kids will love to sing, playable on both Macs and PCs.
