My First Trip to the Farm is a book and CD set that tells the story of Abby Cadabby's visit to Grover's farm.

In the story, Elmo and Abby drive in Oscar's taxi cab to the farm. Farmer Grover greets them, and introduces them to his three little pigs. Abby mistakes them for the Three Little Pigs of storybook fame, and asks why they don't live in a straw house. She tries to turn a haystack into a house, but her spell goes wrong, and it becomes a pumpkin.

Abby spies a sheep -- and, mistaking it for Little Bo Peep's lost sheep, she calls Bo Peep on her wand. Abby also believes that Farmer Grover's cow is the cow that jumped over the moon, and Cookie Monster is Little Boy Blue.

Abby tries to help, but keeps turning everything into pumpkins. Farmer Grover smiles, and says that he's always wanted to grow pumpkins.

The CD that comes with the book features singer Emily Bindiger reading the story, and performing the parts of Abby Cadabby, Elmo, Farmer Grover and Cookie Monster.

Bindiger also sings six nursery rhymes on the CD:

  • "Farmer Grover Has a Farm" (to the tune of "Old McDonald Had a Farm")
  • "The Farmer in the Dell"
  • "The Three Little Pigs"
  • "Little Bo Peep"
  • "Hey Diddle Diddle"
  • "Little Boy Blue"
