There is so much to look at and learn about on a farm — animals, tractors, crops, barns, even a rooster named Breakfast! And children feeding animals for morning chores, which "would be better if they didn't happen in the morning." With lyrical writing and beautiful illustrations that capture the rhythms of the changing seasons, Elisha Cooper brings the farm to life.
Farm celebrates the small New England farm of Cooper's youth and is a beautiful companion to Beach, winner of the 2006 Society of Illustrators Gold Medal.
Praise for Farm
"Cooper creates a joyful tribute to family farms in this luminous and lyrical picture book. The text is stately, quiet, and poetic...and the book slowly takes readers through a year of planing, good and bad weather, and ordinary details about farm life." — Publisher's Weekly, starred review
