On the Farm
author: David Elliott
illustrator: Holly Meade
From the bull to the barn cat to the wild bunny, the farmyard bustles with life. The rooster crows, the rams clash, the bees buzz, and over there in the garden, a snake—silent and alone—winds and watches. David Elliott’s graceful, simple verse and Holly Meade’s exquisite woodcut-and-watercolor illustrations capture a world that is at once timeless yet disappearing from view—the world of the family farm.
“This handsome poetry collection feels as hearty and comforting as a bowl of sugared porridge. . . . Children will delight in the fun and beauty.” —Booklist (starred review)
