" 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.

" A classic and a basic beginners book to teach your preschooler/child about how farms work, look, and help us have food. " 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.

" Originally published in 1988, this new and updated edition gives a nice overview of farming. Readers learn about farm chores, both inside and outside. Gibbons' clear, colorful illustrations show a family farm as it changes from season to season. The work, and the opportunities for fun, change as well. This is a solid addition to nonfiction collections. If you own the old one now is the time to replace it with this newer version. " said.

"This updated version of the 1988 informational text is filled with rich colors and simple text as readers are introduced to farm life. Using the lens of the four seasons--spring, summer, fall, and winter, Gibbons shows the same scenes as they change according to the temperatures and weather. She describes and illustrates those changes and then uses panels to showcase the work that must be completed on the farm. There are many chores that require being inside but many others that mean going outside. By the time readers finish this book, they are sure to have renewed appreciation for the work farmers and farm families do. She concludes the book by distinguishing different types of farms and briefly discussing heirloom crops and genetically modified organism seeds and touting the value of buying produce that is grown locally." said.
