Format: Hardcover
Such a delightful farm scene of the early years! I love how Jim Aylesworth takes rhythmic words to show a day in the life of an early farming family. From the early morning crow of the rooster to the night call of the owl, we are whisked to a day full of animals, chores and family. As a family they milk the cows, feed the hens, hang the laundry, make dinner, shoe a mule, haul hay and more before they relax for the night.
I love the illustrations and how Brad Sneed gives character to the 6 lanky kids, Mom and Dad and Grandma. Tall and lanky, detailed right down to their shoelaces. Old butter-churns, irons and crocks adorn the farmhouse of yesteryear. When families worked together and played together and had a closeness that is captured in this picture book.
I loved this book, with 6 kids of my own and hobby farmers it spoke deeply to me of the bond between family and farm.

Thanks to Holiday House Book for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

Pops, clucks and drips are just a few of the fun sounds on a farm. Join a large family as they wake up and go about their chores, their playing, and their family life. The rhyming words tell an entertaining story about life and sounds during a day on the farm. The illustrations are beautiful, comical, and larger than life. Each picture adds so much to the story and will fascinate young readers. The old fashioned mill wheel, water pump, and stove will give the children an idea of an earlier life and prompt discussions about the things we no longer use in our homes. This book brought a charm to every day farm life that my children loved. The words are simple enough for an early reader to handle. The story and pictures are geared toward ages 3 to 6, but adults will enjoy it as well. We will be keeping this book to enjoy and will definitely be looking for more books by this author and illustrator.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.
