Up We Grow!: A Year in the Life of a Small, Local Farm based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I've always been interested in farming life. Although I'm afraid of every creepy crawly that exists, so I'll never be able to do this myself, the subject simply fascinates me. Especially today, when I buy the majority of our foods at the farmers market.So this book is right up my alley. I like that it speaks directly to the reader, not as if it's telling a story, but directly to you, as if a teacher is patiently, and completely, explaining the different aspects of farming, from growing plants to raising animals. It's divided into seasons to describe what happens at the farm during different times of the year. As a bonus, the pictures are as descriptive as the words on the page.The author mentions composting ¿ another subject I love. But, again, I'm afraid of the little bugs. I need to get over it, fast.Both of my daughters enjoyed this book. LuLu likes the sowing of seeds, since she's planting plants at school. She's trying to earn her green thumb. Coco liked the photo of the ladybug and the one with the baby who had raspberry pie all over her face. It was really cute!Reviewed for Arms of a Sister
