A lovely share from @livingbythepagewithnatalie for this month’s theme of traditions:
We don’t live on a farm but we are surrounded by them. I loved how Sleep Tight Farm depicts a berry, vegetable and hay farm preparing for winter; a pleasant change from a livestock farm book. So much of the illustrations were reminiscent of our Michigan topography and climate...even the sky tonight was almost a mirror image of the one on the cover. Author Eugenie Doyle runs the Last Resort Farm in Vermont and I think that her background and perspective bring a very authentic feel to the book. I just adored the rural farm illustrations by Becca Stadtlander. This is a great cozy read as we prepare our homes (or farms) for that first snowfall. ❄️🍁📚 Published by Chronicle Books in 2016.
