Take a Midwestern farm, add a family, toss in animals, some machinery, and show how it changes through the seasons. Sounds like a traditional farm picture book, right? Perhaps. It becomes extraordinary, however, when you add Elisha Cooper’s impeccable watercolor and pencil illustrations and first-class writing. It creates the same excitement as opening an Advent calender – every tidbit of farm life seems more intriguing than the one before. Farm will keep children reading until they uncover all of its gems.
