This is a book about farm animals, and what happens during one year on a farm. The year is divided into twelve months, and into weeks, days and into minutes. There is something happening every minute on a farm. Animals don't know there is such a thing as a year, but they do know about seasons. Animals know when the cold will come, and they grow heavy overcoats. They know when it is summer, and they shed them. When it is hot, they look for shade, and in winter, they look for shelter. People have names for what they call the months of the year. We could start with any month as far as the animals are concerned, but it is usual to begin with January.
