Children's LiteratureYoung readers can learn all about life on a farm as they track Farmer Dave's day. This book is part of the "First Facts, Community Helpers at Work Series." The day's activities are presented in question and answer format; for example, accompanying the question "What do farm animals eat?" is a photograph showing Dave feeding his cows. A clock appears with each picture, so the readers can track the time of the activities. Fun facts are also included such as how much milk a cow can give a day. The end material of the book includes a glossary, book references, and an Internet address. The book not only focuses on what Farmer Dave does in a typical day but also shows what a modern farm looks like. Photos of his equipment are shown as the text describes what the machines do. Farming involves not just feeding and milking cows but also fixing machines and running them. Large type describes the photographs and encourages reading. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
