Stormchasersara | 3 comments Looking for an older children's book where the child and his or her mother get strawberries from a roadside farm stand, but one day they see that nobody has taken care of the stand in a while. The mother finds the farmer sick and calls for help, while the child goes around taking care of the farm duties.

It is a children's picture book with illustrations that don't use very many colors.

"Older" like from 1985, or from 1950? Are the illustrations realistic, cartoonish, line drawings, etc.?


Stormchasersara | 3 comments I don't know how old. I had it when I was little and I'm 25. The drawings are semi-realistic and kind of rough.
