Storytime: Farm

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Today we read, Farm

This book is for children ages 4-8 but toddlers may very well enjoy paging through and appreciating the pencil and water colour illustrations. I like this book because the illustrations are loose and no facial features appear on the people at all alhamdulillaah.

The story begins in March and follows the ebb and flow of farm life, describing with surprising detail, what takes place on a farm, and ends in November. The story also shows and tells how children are involved in helping on a farm and how they help with necessary day to day tasks.

The text is very detailed and the story itself is a bit long (the book has 48 pages with a considerable amount of text on each page) so it may be a book that is read aloud over the course of several days, each day quickly reminding students/children what happened in the story the day before.

The book is beautifully illustrated and the story well written. This is a picture book that gives a uniquely detailed peek into life on the farm.

If you are studying farms or farm animals, along with these resources, this book may be a nice addition to your study.
