Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristina Cassidy
The "Learn About Rural Life" series introduces readers to four different types of rural communities in North America. The series is organized by each community's main industry: farming, fishing, forestry, and mining. Each book introduces the industry, how it has developed, and then profiles a single community engaged in that industry. Details of how products are harvested, processed, and shared with consumers follow. Readers learn more about life in the community and about a typical family. Each book concludes with information about the industry around the world, facts and figures about the industry, and a glossary. Life in a Farming Community explains that farming involves growing plants or animals on a farm. Farms are usually located in rural areas. One farming community is Monticello, Wisconsin. Readers learn more about life in Monticello, the history of the village, and activities the people enjoy. Then they learn about what life is like for a family on a farm, how dairy farms work, and what happens when farm products are processed. The author acknowledges that farming has changed drastically here and around the world. While much of the vocabulary is simple and overall explanations are adequate, young readers may puzzle over some words that go unexplained, such as "cereal," which here refers to grain crops rather than breakfast food. Some information is not necessarily accurate, as it is unlikely that everyone in a town of 1,200 knows each other, just as students in a similarly sized school would not all know each other.
