We don’t live on a farm but we are surrounded by them! I loved how ‘Sleep Tight Farm’ depicts a berry, vegetable and hay farm preparing for winter; a pleasant change from a livestock farm book.
So much of the illustrations were reminiscent of our Michigan topography and climate…even the sky tonight was almost a mirror image of the one on the cover.
Author Eugenie Doyle runs the Last Resort Farm in Vermont and I think that her background and perspective bring a very authentic feel to the book.
I just adored the rural farm illustrations by Becca Stadtlander.
This is a great cozy read as we prepare our homes (or farms) for that first snowfall.
