“Charming drawings and handwritten text make this the perfect picture book for grown-up dreamers.”

Farm Anatomy fits perfectly into my growing collection of books that will come in handy when I give up city life for green acres. (Or more realistically, when I’m sitting in my city apartment needing a quick armchair-style escape.)

I loved the whimsical pictures in the book. It was more of a picture book than a word book, but it is a great place to start if you're new to the farming world.

Delightful introduction to country life and terminology. A marvelous gift for any friend who aspires to be rural! And while not designed for children, would be an educational and engaging browse.
