Clear, vivid language describes a young child's day on Grandpa's farm, from the rooster's early morning crow to shared oatmeal for breakfast, collecting eggs, feeding the animals, working in the garden, bailing hay, and fixing wobbly fences. The child is thrilled to be part of the farm routine and proud of her contributions. And Grandpa enjoys both her companionship and her help. Young children will enjoy the experience of a day on the farm for one young girl and her loving grandfather. This is an utterly wholesome and appealing story about a satisfying intergenerational relationship.
