The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 2017 Book of the Month Unless they are regular visitors to the countryside it can be hard for children to connect the milk in the two litre cartons on the supermarket shelves or in their fridge with a cow in the field; this book will address that. Over colourful, busy pages it takes children round a working farm, and in the process answers 100 questions, from who lives in the barn, to how do seeds grow, to how does flour become wheat. The answers are often hidden behind flaps making this a fun, interactive reading experience as well as an informative one. ~ Andrea Reece

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
