Comments for Farm
Farm by Elisha Cooper follows a family through the seasons as the run their farm. The cover has an alluring watercolor of a rooster in foreground with the farm behind just on the horizon.
I had hoped that the rest of the book would have similarly bold illustrations. The book though is rather text heavy and the watercolors are mostly just miniature pictures against the black and white of the text on the page.
For older children who can read the book does teach how a farm works. For younger children, though, there's probably too much text for them to want to sit through. As the illustrations are small the book won't work well for a group story time.
