About this title


Now in Dragonfly--here is a glowing picture-book celebration of farm life.  

A Time  magazine Top 10 Best Children's Book of the Year

From the Back Cover:

"This enormously appealing concept book guides readers through the 12 months on a farm. It's also a prose poem, using repeated phrases that even youngest children will quickly echo. What sets it apart from the crowd is the surprisingly fresh language...Mathis enhances this story with evocative paintings, using vibrant colors and interesting perspectives across the mostly double-page spreads...The concluding pages are breathtaking, with their vivid imagery in both word and art. There should be a place in most collections for this treasure."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"What a wonderful way to teach children the months of the year...Lesser and Mathis create an exuberant paean to life."--Kirkus Reviews (pointer review)
