Julia Rothman continues to be a huge hit to adults and children alike. Her books are often used in homeschool curriculum or just as fascinating books for children to thumb through anytime you need them to stay interested in something worthwhile (I’m looking at you car rides and road trips). Rothman’s books are so popular with families, she has new complementary books coming out this summer for her Nature, Farm and Ocean Anatomy Books (No word on a food one yet!)
In this fun book, 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.
Also available in this series: Nature Anatomy, Nature Anatomy Notebook, Ocean Anatomy, and Food Anatomy.
