In, Over and On the Farm by Ethan Long
In! Over! and On! introduces prepositions, but it's also just plain fun! It's equally useful for storytime (it cracks kids up) or as a beginning reader. Chapters consists of about 7 sentences on as many pages and end in a joke revealed under a flap. The farm animals are boldly and simply illustrated but packed full of expressions as they burst out of the hen house, jump a fence and launch off a tractor.
