In rustic images that evoke the sights and sounds of daily life on a farm-with its chores, animals, and gardens: A is for Apple, being picked fresh from a tree. D is for Dog, asleep in a cozy armchair. J is for the Jump kids make into a hay mound. N is for Neighbor to chat with across a picket fence. Z is for Zinnia flowers and, of course, F is for Farm.
This oversized book, perfect for sharing, represents a side of life rarely seen in children’s books-a realistic view of a working farm as it provides an alphabetical view for children of country life.
Paperback, 64 pages. Recommended ages 3 to 6 years.
From the exhibition BASCOVE: The Time We Spend with Words on view March 12 through May 30, 2022 at Norman Rockwell Museum.
