The Year at Maple Hill Farm
The Provensons take the reader through their farm, focusing on a few aspect of it. They introduce children to the animals and how they have different roles to play on the farm. They also explain how some of the animals interact with each other.
Children also see the farm in each month and season with the unique aspects of each time period highlighted. Because the farm is in New York, there are four distinct seasons in the book.
Children will be delighted with the detailed illustrations and the humor included throughout.
The Year at Maple Hill Farm is a lovely book for young children. It is definitely worth adding to your cozy book reading collection!
