Synopsis

Sleep Tight Farm A Farm Prepares for Winter by Eugenie F. Doyle

A captivating exploration of how a family gets a farm ready for the snow of winter, Sleep Tight Farm lyrically connects each growing season to the preparations at the very end of the farm year. This beautiful and informative book paints a fascinating picture of what winter means to the farm year and to the family that shares its seasons, from spring's new growth, summer's heat, and autumn's bounty to winter's well- earned rest. All year long the farm has worked to shelter us, feed us, keep us warm, and now it's time to sleep.
