What do you do if you're a young girl chasing fireflies on your family farm when one of the hay bales in the field starts moving toward you, and you see it's a black bear? This is what happens in The Live Bale of Hay, which portrays a day in the life of a farm girl named Carol. Young readers will relive the lifestyle of rural New England, one of barn fires, lemonade stands, mowing machines and balers, and things that go bump in the night.

About the Author:

Carol Shorey Dean is a Maine children's writer. Sandra Dunn is an artist and art educator in one of Maine's public schools.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3–This book has the same quiet, nostalgic quality as Dean's The Henhouse (Down East, 2003). Carol and her friend Diane spend the day selling lemonade to a farmer and his haying crew. After the sun sets, the girls head outside with the dog to catch fireflies. In the fading light, they see what looks like a live bale of hay. As it comes closer, they realize that it is actually a bear. The dog fearlessly stands up to the animal, which is subsequently scared off by the family's shouting. The story ends softly when the girls and the unharmed dog are tucked safely in bed to dream about their adventure. Along the way, the author explains the haying process. The information gives depth to this farm story. At times the facts fit smoothly into the narrative, but often they seem forced and awkward. In their simplicity, the watercolors have a childlike quality. The soft, naive style reflects a simple rural life. There is a playful, almost whimsical quality to the paintings, particularly in the animals. A startled fox and mouse jump out of the hay field; a cat chases butterflies and fireflies and dreams of mice. This gentle tale will work best one-on-one or in a family setting.–Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
