Book Review - The Farm Book by Jan Pfloog

Friday, July 2, 2010

I used to have The Farm Book when I was a child, I had completely forgotten about it until I recently volunteered to organize the old library of a local non-profit parent run preschool. That is when I found this book sitting on the shelf, memories came flooding back as I flipped through the pages, I just knew I had to check it out to read at home to my son.
The story follows members of the family as they go about the day doing their jobs on the farm. The illustrations are like Norman Rockwell for kids, that all American look at everyday life. Somehow this book makes the simple tasks of life on a farm look like so much fun.
After all these years The Farm Book still works it's magic, as I read it to my son his eyes lit up, he started talking animatedly and pointing at the pages. At the end he asked if we could go to a farm, this book definitely has a certain charm
