Shelves: county-fair, fall, kids
This is a neat book to help children learn about all the seasons of the year, what goes with each season. And about the county fair and the fun things that go along with the fair. A little girl loves the fair so much that she is always asking her parents is it time for the fair yet? And her mom help her to be patient with various things she does throughout the year until time for the fair.
