The Year at Maple Hill Farm

The Year at Maple Hill Farm by Alice and Martin Provensen traces life at a farm over a year. Starting in cold, dark January it describes each month and season through the eyes of the animals and people who live and work on the farm. Come spring eggs are laid, heavy coats are shed, and the pace picks up. Each month is handsomely laid out with vignettes of various animals. There are some funny asides about animal behavior as well. It's a great introduction to year-round life on a farm. (Non-Fiction)
