" An introduction to farming and the work done on a farm throughout the seasons. " said.

" A non-fiction book to talk about all aspects of farming through the seasons. Great to use for vocabulary lessons and strategies using context clues. Very appealing and easy to follow. Recommended for grades 2-4. " said.

" We really enjoy Gail Gibbons books. They are informative with clearly described and labeled images. This one is about chores on a farm in every season. In winter the farm is quiet but there is still work going on.... " said.

"Gibbons gives a good basic overview of farming in this book written for children from grades K to 3. She shows how farms are used throughout the year, with sections for spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Each seasonal section has three parts: an overview page, outside chores, and inside chores. Children can observe that some farm chores are seasonal, but some – like lugging water to the chicken house and milking the cows – take place year round. Children can also learn many farming specific vocabulary words such as “harrowed”, “tedded”, “baled”, and “silo”. The last three pages include some information about six different kinds of farms. The illustrations are functional but also pleasing to look at. Trees, leaves, bricks, cornstalks, animals, and other repetitive objects are drawn individually and not copied and pasted. Children will enjoy looking at the many details in the pictures." said.

" This picture book goes over what happens on a farm during each season of the year covering both outside and inside chores. It is nicely done, but might be a bit dated now as it was originally published 30 years ago. " said.

" A simple, of-its-era look at the workings of a diversified small farm. The changing of seasons is presented along with lists and illustrations of all of the chores that must be done around the farm. Farms such as this were getting rarer and rarer during the book's publication and today are in many cases niche farms only serving small markets. Animals are shown in uncrowded conditions, and the factory farming style that dominates today's marketplaces are not depicted. " said.

"We got a themed box of books from the library about Farms and this was one of the books. We all really enjoyed this one. Once again it brought back childhood memories of spending summers on my grandfather's farm. There was so much going on in the pictures my preschoolers were fascinated. And there was a perfect words to pictures ration to make it interesting for children of all ages. We loved seeing the big picture of the barn on every other page and watch how it looked different as the seasons change. It was fun for my kids to see what different kinds of work had to be done at different times of the year. And the small details like the little chipmunk were engaging for my kids as they watched him thru the yearly life cycle. Overall, a very enjoyable book." said.
