The Year At Maple Hill Farm by Alice and Martin Provensen
A lovely picture book that describes one year on a farm, from January to December. The actions of the farmers and their animals each month are described with gentle and charming illustrations to match the text. A fine book for introducing children to the country and farm life. The book is also a good introduction to the months and seasons of the year. Although a fiction book, it is an accurate portrayal of life on a family farm.
