Doyle, Eugenie Sleep Tight Farm Illustrated by Becca Stadtlander Chronicle Books, 2016. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
This book follows a farmer and his family as they prepare their land and animals for the coming winter. Everything has already been harvested, but now they need to protect the fields, chop wood, and cover the hoophouse. They also put Christmas lights on the house and when they are done the snow comes.
The illustrations in this book are beautiful and detailed. It’s fascinating to read what farmers do to put their farm to rest for the winter, but the writing style seemed a bit jumbled. The book is worth looking at for the pictures alone, but the text is not that engaging.
