Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
PW called the latter title from the Caldecott Medal-winning team behind The Glorious Flight "one of the Provensens' loveliest books. Those privileged to experience it are sure to be convinced that country life has special rewards." Ages 3-7. (Dec.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The Provensens have given us another wonderful glimpse at their farm, which was first introduced in The Year At Maple Hill Farm. Here we meet two dogs, five horses, a pig, some geese, chickens, cows, goats, sheep and four special cats. The wonderful watercolor illustrations compliment the humor of the words in describing the various personalities of these animals. Most of the animals have names, and their behavior is described in conversational text¾"Baby lambs are pretty and full of fun. They run together. They jump together. They play King of the Mountain. The only trouble with baby lambs is that they grow so quickly and become sheep." The simplicity of the art and the importance of every animal's eyes make this a friendly book for sharing with children of many ages. This oversize book deserves a place in homes and libraries. A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year. 2001 (orig. 1974), Simon & Schuster, $7.99 and $6.50. Ages 3 to 9. Reviewer: Candace Deisley AGES: 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    My Favorite Book

    This is my all time favorite children's book and I'm thrilled that it's been republished! A few years ago, a friend wanted to buy if for her children and couldn't find it.It was a favorite when I was a child and still is today.

    Favorite children's book...

    I had this book in the original edition and I'm thrilled that it is available again. This is a fabulous book! It discusses all of tha animals on the farm, their quirks, personalities as well as the reality of birth and death. I learned a lot from this book as a child and cannot wait to read it to my daughter as well. I recommend this book for young and old alike!

    Highly recommended

    This delightful book manages to catch the essence of the animals described. Any one who has lived on a small farm will recognize all of these animals. We consider it a classic and everyone in our family has a copy as it brings back our days on our farm. This book is enjoyed by all ages!
