Format: Paperback
This has been a favorite book of ours for years and years and years. "The Year at Maple Hill Farm" is written and illustrated by Alice and Martin Provenson. It documents, from January through December, the hard tasks and simple pleasures inherent in life on a farm--everything from bird migrations to the foaling of the horses to lazy summer days spent doing nothing more important swatting flies.
Humans and animals co-exist peacefully here. The illustrations are simple and gently colored, with subtle detail sprinkled throughout. The animals are given a great deal of personality (see especially the cats, who are wonderfully quirky) and the story itself, while utterly basic and free of frills, has an undertow of narrative propulsion that makes each page seem a natural outgrowth of the previous page.
I can't recommend the book highly enough. If you live in the country, you will recognize so much of what is here. If you live in the city, you will welcome the peaceful rhythms of this charming book.

I just bought this book for a gift, and seeing it on Amazon's website makes me want to go find it on my daughter's bookshelf, and read it myself. And I'm 43!

What a sweet, beautiful, educational, pleasure of a book. It's a great size with gorgeous illustrations. The text is fun to read and fun for a child to listen to, and the whole book is non-fiction and very educational. The perfect combination of a book. I just love it and love to give it! It just bounces and is very engaging. You'll want to read it every season for years.

Enjoy!

We got this book as a companion to 'Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm'. I have to say, I love 'Our Animal Friends' best, but this is also a great book. I like it as a companion to Our Animal Friends. The book goes through the months of the year, and what happens with the animals in each month. Humorous and interresting for our 3 and 7 year olds.

My children loved this book years ago. The illustrations are wonderful; the writer has a strange sense of humor in some of the comments. I wanted to introduce my grandkids to this book and it seems my grandson (almost 3) had already discovered this book at the library and really liked it. I am giving this book as a special Christmas gift to him so he can read it as often as he would like!

This book is excellent for little ones to begin to understand the flow of time, seasons and months. Really little ones can benefit from the pictures and also the bold words while older kiddos can get more detail. It goes through the months of the year and what happens in the farm. We also talk about whose birthday it is in those months to bring it closer to home. It helps children to understand the cycle of the year with months and seasons.

This is such a great book, that has stood the test of time. Loved it as a kid, as does my 4 year old (and two year old twins! Though they aren't ready to sit for all the words sometimes). So much to look at on each page, and its great for showing kids some of the things on a farm that you don't read about in less detailed books. So glad to see it is still in print!

This wonderful picture book takes you through a year at a farm (great for us city dwellers who have never step foot on a farm). It is very informative and interesting. The pictures and the story are enjoyed by my children. We are very pleased to have this book in our collection.
