Superb book. From what little I know of a working farm, this book is dead on. Give it to a city kid who can't imagine the whole picture: the beauty, the work, and the huge, huge sky. I would like to hang the double-page spread of the night sky on my wall. I also love the heavy glossy paper used for this book.

We have this shelved in picture books but it could almost be nonfiction. Includes a Glossary.

Favorite quotes:

"The tiller turns the soil, preparing it for planting. Dirt pops into the air, and the fields change from the color of milk chocolate to the color of dark chocolate."

"Then the rows grow together and the fields become an ocean of green. The farms are like islands on the ocean. The tractors are like boats."

"The smell changes depending on which way the wind is blowing."

"September shows that some things are not forever."
