The second beaut story in the George the Farmer series has been added to the app: 'George the Farmer Shears a Sheep'. It's shearing time on the farm and it's all hands on deck to get the sheep shorn before the rain sets in! Will Ruby get the sheep penned up in time?

This ripper interactive story, full of farming sounds including tractor rumbles, barking dogs and baa-ing sheep, follows George, Ruby, Jack, Lucy and their New Zealand shearing mates as they shear 900 sheep over three days.

"George the Farmer... will help young children better understand life on an Australian farm and help raise the profile of farming in a positive way" - Hon. Barnaby Joyce, MP, Federal Minister for Agriculture.

Fantastic! 5 stars! George the Farmer... he’s our mate!

Love the new story and the fact the kids can help do the shearing! Fantastic story and illustrations showing life on an Australian farm. The kids keep asking to see more George! I’ve even caught them singing the song when shopping in the supermarket - and I'm sure the shearing song will be the same! Simple games that are fun for everyone to play - or take turns with. I’ve told my friends about George! So good to see great Australian content in an app. Congratulations on the inclusion in the Australian Schools Curriculum. Very well deserved!

The kids can't get enough of George!

George is an asset to farmers across the globe! The shearing story is really great with some fun activities available for the kids throughout the story such as shearing. Along with it being fun, it is also educational. Highly recommend. My kids love it. Fantastic Australian content and great pictures. LOVE the shearing song!! I think it should be in the top 40! What a great tune. Can't wait to see George's next adventure!
