Continuing to share favorite picture books. Go here to find the Winter book list.
Many of our children's favorite books focus on animals and life in the country. Some of these books were my favorites when I was a girl.
Oxcart Man by Donald Hall
Favorite story of pioneer diligence illustrated by our favorite artist, Barbara Cooney.
Brambly Hedge Autumn Story by Jill Barklem
Sweet story and illustrations that make you want to climb into the pictures! I dreamed of living in Brambly Hedge as a child. The other seasons are also available in this series.
G is for Goat by Patricia Polacco
A new book on our shelf. Once again, it is the illustrations that pull me, this time sweet girls in pinafores and adorable floppy eared goats. If you like goats, this is definitely the book for you.
A Year at Maple Hill Farm by Alice and Martin Provensen
Another favorite author and illustrator.
James Herriot's Treasury for Children
A Yorkshire vet shares sweet animal stories.
Pelle's New Suit by Elsa Beskow
This book has recently been republished. I love how different members of the community work together to make a suit out of wool for Pelle.
Little Puppy by Judy Dunn
All of our children have loved this series of books about various animals.
