Recently published: The Farm That Feeds Us A year in the life of an organic farm by Nancy Castaldo

Organized by the seasons, starting with spring, young readers will explore the activities that takes place on a farm over the course of the year. For example, in the spring, there are “At the Orchard” and “Harvesting Early Spring Crops” sections, while summer has “Corn Planting and Harvesting.” along with “Heading to the Country Fair.” Among the fall sections are “Harvesting Pumpkins and Squash” and “Putting the Farm to Sleep” and for winter there are “Winter Maintenance” and “At the Farmer’s Market.” (Note there are many additional sections as well.)

The book opens with an introduction to the many types of farms that exist, everything from dairy to poultry to sheep and then to orchards and crops. Readers will see and learn about everything from chickens to bees. There are vehicles and tools and so much more. There is even a recipe for bread.
I truly loved the idyllic illustrations that are found throughout the book. They made me wish desperately to be on that farm. I found this book to be delightful and engaging.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
