Popular illustrator Julia Rothman presents a colorfully entertaining visual tour of the parts of the farm and of the animals and activities found there, dissecting everything from cows, pigs, and roosters to the farmer’s breakfast, crop rotation patterns, tractors and tools, and much, much more.
Farm Anatomy fits perfectly into my growing collection of books that will come in handy when I give up city life for green acres. (Or more realistically, when I’m sitting in my city apartment needing a quick armchair-style escape.)
“Charming drawings and handwritten text make this the perfect picture book for grown-up dreamers.”
