9780763620554: Farmer Will

"Very much in tune with toddler sensibilities . . . ideal for both one-on-one sharing and story hours for the youngest listeners." - BOOKLIST

Will loves farm animals. He loves to say Neigh! Moo! Baa! and Oink! He has a special farmer’s hat and his own little horse, cow, sheep, and pig, so it’s not surprising that his family calls him Farmer Will. With the soft colors of a country springtime, the author-illustrator of BABY ANGELS brings her gentle focus to a familiar image of childhood - a young child immersed in imaginary play with favorite toys.

About the Author:

Jane Cowen-Fletcher is an artist, author, and illustrator. After receiving her B.F.A. from Colorado State University in 1981 she served for two years in the Peace Corps in West Africa. She then worked for several years as a graphic artist and freelance illustrator before turning her attention to children’s books. She lives in Maine with her husband and two children, the youngest of whom is the model for Farmer Will.

From Publishers Weekly:

Cowan-Fletcher (Baby Angels) depicts an idyllic interlude of preschooler pretend, filled with giggles and games and the simple joys of larking about. Young Will has four toy animals: Orsey the horse, Dow the cow, Bah the sheep and Wink-Wink the pig. Indoors, they fit snugly inside his straw farmer's hat. But when he takes them outside to the soft green lawn "so they can stretch out," they become life-size friends that can romp and play hide-and-seek (the horse likes to hide behind the scarecrow). When everyone is "played out," Will's animals magically shrink to toy-size again, and join "the happiest little farmer in the whole wide world" in bed for a nap. Gossamer, sunlit pastel drawings in spreads and vignettes complement an unadorned text that exudes authenticity. The author/artist demonstrates her keen understanding of a child's sense of imaginative play, as Will gleefully and determinedly throws his entire body into the act of running and frolicking. As for Will's playmates, they're everything an imaginative child could ask for: roly-poly, bright-eyed, utterly devoted and always poised for adventure. Ages 2-5.
