Learn the difference between a farrow and a barrow, and what distinguishes a weanling from a yearling. Country and city mice alike will delight in Julia Rothman’s charming illustrated guide to the curious parts and pieces of rural living. Dissecting everything from the shapes of squash varieties to how a barn is constructed and what makes up a beehive to crop rotation patterns, Rothman gives a richly entertaining tour of the quirky details of country life.
The illustrations in this book are captivating to children and adults alike. This book wasn't necessarily written for children, but has become one of my preschooler’s favorites to look through over and over and over, especially on long car rides. It's also fantastic as part of a homeschool curriculum for older children.
