The well-loved words of Ecclesiastes take on new life and meaning in the sun-baked rural setting of a South African homestead. Sowing, planting, and reaping through the wet and dry seasons, going to market, day-to-day dealings with neighbors and acquaintances, love and hostility, the sadness of mourning and the joy of celebration with family and friends — Judy Daly portrays an ageless world, studded with color and miniature detail, in this very special book.

About the Author:

Jude Daly lives in Cape Town, South Africa, with her husband, writer and illustrator Nikki Daly, and their sons Joe and Leo. Her previous titles include The Tale of Paradise Lost: Based on the Poem by John Milton by Nancy Willard (Atheneum), The Elephant's Pillow by Diana Reynolds Roome (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), which was awarded a Parents' Choice Silver Honor, and The Stone: A Persian Legend of the Magi by Dianne Hofmeyr (Farrar, Straus & Giroux).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5–This inspirational passage is presented through a series of simply drawn, softly colored illustrations. Rather than represent the duality of humanitys existence with an overview of world cultures, as Leo and Diane Dillon did in their interpretation (Scholastic, 1998), Daly concentrates on one particular culture, depicting rural life in South Africa. Beginning with an overarching view of the four seasons, each pair of succeeding lines is illustrated with vignettes of the farmers on their farms. Readers see them plant and harvest their crops, raise their children, and experience lifes simple pleasures and sorrows. Women and children are shown in most of the scenes, and the land, sea, and sky dominate each picture; the miniature stature of the people calls to mind their relative insignificance against the awesome forces of nature. The carefully detailed images convey the importance of unity and family. The layout of opposing lines of verse on separate pages or in different frames works well. The entire verse, taken from the King James Version of the Bible, is printed at the end. A subtle interpretation of a well-known piece of scripture.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA
