Little Old Farm Folk

Little Old Farm Folk, Godine’s first-ever board book, fondly evokes memories of Old MacDonald and his farm. In sweet rhyme, we are taken through the daily tasks of running the farm: milking, egg collecting, laundry, woodcutting, and more. The little old man, the little old lady, their cat, their dog, and other familiar livestock are depicted in Andrea Wisnewski’s charming paper-cut print style. Each quaint vignette contains artistic details that will enthrall children, while the text begs to be read aloud, time and time again. An original in the time-honored tradition of children’s books on farm life, Little Old Farm Folk is a endearing little primer on a more rustic way of living.

Andrea Wisnewski is the creator of A Cottage Garden Alphabet (Godine, 2003) and Little Red Riding Hood (Godine, 2016), as well as a regular contributor to Cricket and other children’s magazines.
