A fantastic picture book that teaches to much in a fun way.

Initially you get introduced to the farm and its residents. Then we follow the activities of the farm month by month through a complete year.

You could use this book as a springboard into a conversation about:
Months of the year
Seasons - the seasons are even the right way around (for us "antipodeans")
Life and Death
Farming
Eating food in season
Impacts of feral animals
Drought/importance of water

Andrew McLean does an outstanding job in captur

this is a beautiful well illustrated book which discusses the what happens in a year on the farm. It is truthful account and if your reading it to young children you may have to "gloss over" some of it but I really liked this book
