For those new to my blog, the month of april is Cultivating Reading month at our school. In support of such a great month, I’ve decided to feature an Ag Book for each day of school. Today is day eight!
And since we’re entering the half-way point of April (and it’s Wordless Wednesday…hmmm, Wordy Wednesday?), I’ve decided to include some pics of sure signs of spring:
Today’s Ag Book of the Day is:
“When the Rooster Crowed” by Patricia Little. It’s a really great book about a farmer that wants just a few more moments of rest before starting his chores in the morning…but too many people and animals are relying on him! It’s a cute story, with great illustrations, and my boys love reading it, especially when they’ve gone one too many mornings without seeing Dad.
Oh, the last photo was a classic! Too much fun! Thanks for sharing!!!
Thanks, Dawn! I’m gonna frame it for him some day! 😉
Love your pictures but that last one is the best!! I think I have some of those in our pictures, too.
Hi, VaLois! Thanks for the comment! I’m sure he’ll appreciate this picture in the future! 🙂
Yes, the outdoor bathroom…..after my son using the outdoor bathroom at the park, I had to teach him that this should only happen on the ranch. lol! very cute:)
Yes, it’s a lesson you quickly try to teach! Although EJ did once use the “bathroom” on a brand new combine tire…while still at the dealership. *sigh* Memories…
Why is it that the male species insists on using the outdoor bathroom when the indoor one is steps away? And, our tulips are almost all done blooming. Boo!
Oh the outdoor bathroom. Not only does my son like that, Miss E does too. At least she is a big talker about it. I am very interested in this series of books you are doing Val. My favorite children’s agriculture related book is If You’re Not From the Prairie…
I once blogged about it http://pinkepost.blogspot.com/2011/01/3-prairie-dwelling-must-have-childrens.html
Look forward to seeing you soon I hope!
Love your blog! I just came across it, and I’ll definitely be following along on your farm adventures. Particularly like your “industrial love for ag” post. 🙂
Thank you! And you’re welcome along for the ride! Just hold on tight, cuz I’m not sure where we’re going yet! 🙂
