That looks like such a good book with adorable drawings and interesting facts. Being a city girl, it would be interesting to learn more about the “farm life”. :)

I absolutely love it! I’m a MFA student at Parsons in New York and we are currently working on a project to raise awareness about food production. Stunning book! I would love to get my hands on a copy!

This was the type of book I loved as a kid, and still do! Awesome details illustrations with lots to look at on each page! Pick me, pick me!

Such a beauty! I am a graphic designer and am moving to the country next month… we’ll be surrounded by apple trees and horses! I would love to add this to my inspiration. Thanks for the giveaway!

Funny coincidence, my friends happen to be having a farm themed wedding (at a barn, no less) next year. This would be the PERFECT gift for me, the unofficial Wedding Planner to give them during the planning process.
