Little Old Farm Folk

Andrea Wisnewski. Godine, $7.99 (34p) ISBN 978-1-5679-2594-4
Wisnewski follows an elderly pair of farmers through a busy day on their property in this homespun board book with a bright, nursery rhyme–like cadence. The text appears on left-hand pages (“The little old man and the little old dog/ walk out to the pen to slop the hogs”); folksy, standalone lines that trail off (“And as sure as the sun does shine...”) lead into each subsequent scene. At right, Wisnewski captures each moment in the couple’s day in circular vignettes whose thick black outlines and watery washes of bright color give them the look of stained glass windows. It’s a charmingly old-fashioned trip to the farm that speaks to hard work and simple pleasures. Up to age 4. (May)
