In sweet pictures and rhyme, we are taken through the daily tasks of running the farm: milking, egg collecting, laundry, woodcutting, and more. The little old man, the little old lady, their cat, their dog, and other familiar farm animals are depicted in Andrea Wisnewski's charming paper-cut style.
Each quaint vignette contains artistic details that will enthrall children, while the text begs to be read aloud, time and again. An original in the time-honored tradition of children's books on farm life, Little Old Farm Folk is an endearing little celebration of the rustic way of living. Or as Publishers Weekly called it, "A charmingly old-fashioned trip to the farm."
Andrea Wisnewski is also the author of Trio: The Tale of a Three-Legged Cat, Little Red Riding Hood, and Andrea Wisnewski Greeting Cards--all published by Godine. Trio was named one of the best picture books of the year by Kirkus Reviews and, of Little Red Riding Hood, School Library Journal said, "The rich colors and thick flowing lines are technically accomplished and lovely. The book's design suits the content: it is simple and elegant."
