Grade 1-2-Two books with pretty pictures and little content. The writing styles and vocabularies are so overly simplified that the texts are full of misconceptions and ambiguities. Buildings contains some questionable statements about Europeans constructing farm buildings in North America in the 1500s. Reference is made to the fact that farms are disappearing, but does not explain what this means and how it is happening. Old and New attempts to describe a farm of the 1700s, mid-1800s, and the present. The term "new" apparently refers to the use of modern methods, improved grain varieties, and animal breeds. Unfamiliar terms are boldfaced and sometimes defined in the text. The attractive color photography would do better as calendar art. A picture of a chicken coop faces the page that discusses shelter for cattle, horses, sheep, and pigs. A page that mentions the coming of steam and gasoline engines appears opposite a picture of the latest model of a four-wheel drive John Deere tractor. Captions add very little to the text, and one is incorrect.
