Growing Seasonsby carolyn pratt, Ken Stark, Carolyn Pratt
Elsie Lee Splear grew up on a farm in the early part of the 20th century. With the help of her daughter, Carolyn, Elsie tells what life was like for her and her sisters: the hard work they did making their own soap, churning butter, canning fruits, butchering meat, and much more. Everything had a season but as the years turned, a few, small changes came to their lives.
As it opens a window onto a personal slice of American history, this gentle, moving story portrays a way of life that seems both distant and familiar. Ken Stark, who was a friend of Elsie's, displays his clear love of the land in each picture.

The illustrations, which are wonderful, are done by Ken Stark not Starkey as you have listed in your Web site. Please correct and give Mr. Stark credit for the paintings that help this great little book tremendously.
