Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Most picture books about farms tend to be slapstick animal adventures rather than realistic views of daily life. Cooper's latest fills that gap with a quiet, atmospheric portrait of a farm through the seasons. Working in his signature style of loosely rendered figures and simple compositions in pencil and watercolor, Cooper combines beautiful, expansive views of a farm seen from a distance under an endless sky with small, individual images, such as the farm's cats, which younger children will want to point to and count. Like the pictures, the words move from large landscapes to small details. In a spread about May, for example, descriptions of the vast fields that look like an ocean of green mix with lines about the butterflies and bees that zoom through the garden. Filled with sensory details, the brief text has a poetic, stripped-down simplicity that matches the stark images and will read aloud well. Cameo appearances of the farm's animals and children will help hold young people's attention throughout this subtle, handsome view of modern, rural life.--Engberg, Gillian Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cooper (Beach) creates a joyful tribute to family farms in this luminous and lyrical picture book. The text is stately, quiet, and poetic ("Morning chores would be better if they didn't happen every morning"), and the book slowly takes readers through a year of planting, good and bad weather, and ordinary details about farm life. At the same time, Cooper includes enough specific portraits and names to make the book seem like a felicitous cross between fiction and nonfiction. Like a puzzlemaker, Cooper begins with a sequence of cumulative phrases and sketchbook-style paintings: "Take a farmer, another farmer, a boy, a girl. Add a house, two barns, four silos.... Then cattle, chickens, countless cats, a dog. Put them all together and you get..." A page turn reveals "...a farm," broad and serene, stretched across the palest of skies. Delicately shaded watercolors, outlined in black, are a mix of spot art, clustered images, and spectacular spreads that portray the farm and its inhabitants from diverse points of view. The graceful text and serenely stunning illustrations create a portrait both reverent and realistic. Ages 4-8. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
