Beth Wood of Our Montessori Life returns with a delightful farm themed book recommendation. Don’t worry, this book is a perfect introduction for country and city kids alike!
Farm Anatomy – The Curious Parts and Pieces of Country Life. by Julia Rothman
“The title captures everything wonderful about this book. Suited for children 3-6 years old, each of its seven chapters is dedicated to surrounding the reader with a complete encyclopedia of rural life. Everything from the different layers of the soil, to the animals and machinery, to the kitchen gadgets.
The illustrations are beautifully simple and yet detailed. It is a book that would be a great jumping off point to a teacher’s curriculum, and it is a book that will light a spark of curiosity in a child (or adult) wanting to know more about homesteading and traditional farming.”
Check out the book for purchase here.
