“Colorful and intimate.” Midwest Book Review

“This engagingly illustrated guide to all sorts of farms and the things that live and grow on them has a Richard Scarry “busytown” kind of vibe. It tallies fruits that grow in orchards, and vegetables that can be harvested in spring or later in the summer. It also offers in-depth look at tractors, varietals of corn and pumpkin, and ways to manage pests without chemicals–plus scads of info about honeybees and other pollinators. If your child wasn’t interested in being a farmer before she reads this book, she will be afterwards.” Lela Nargi, Sierra Club Magazine

“An engaging resource that will appeal to a variety of elementary audiences, plant lovers, and farm machinery alike.” Sara Jurek, School Library Journal
