Explore farm life in an exciting and unique way in this fun addition to the acclaimed Abrams Block Book series!
What’s it like to live the rural life on a farm through the seasons? From a rooster crowing at the crack of dawn to picking pumpkins for Halloween, there is so much to do all year-round! It’s time to plant some crops, harvest the veggies, and make jam to take to the farmer’s market! Young readers can experience what it’s like to milk cows, feed goats, till soil, chop wood for winter, and even roast marshmallows as spring, summer, fall, and winter go by on a farm.
Like other books in the Block Book series such as Cityblock, Alphablock, Countablock, and Dinoblock, Farmblock features die-cut shapes on every spread and has durable, interactive fold-out pages, perfect for little hands. Flip a page up to see a sunflower growing up to the sky; flip a page down to see roots—and carrots!—growing down, down, down into the earth. With bright, animated, retro-inspired artwork by Peski Studio, take a trip down a country road to visit a working farm and the chickens, horses, cows, cats, and dogs who live there. A must-have book for the little farmer in your family.
