I don’t remember where I first discovered Sleep Tight Farm: A Farm Prepares For Winter, but I knew it was a story I wanted to add to my picture book library and share with my readers. Written by Eugenie Doyle and illustrated by Becca Stadtlander, it is about a farm family preparing for winter.
It is cozy in so many ways and a natural addition to Homeschooling with Cozy Books.
Sleep Tight Farm
The December days shorten and darken.
We are busy putting the farm to bed.
So begins Sleep Tight Farm, a delightful book about one family’s preparations around their farm as winter approaches with snow that will blanket the land.
The story traces their actions in December as they put the finishing touches on the work they’ve done the previous spring, summer, and fall. Caring for crops, chopping wood, preparing the chicken coop, and taking care of the bee hives are all part of getting the farm ready for winter.
The illustrations are inviting with a charm of their own. This is a wonderful story for families who long to move to their own little spot in the country or who simply enjoy wholesome books about rural and farm life.
Definitely worth adding to your collection of cozy homeschooling books!
