Join this Vermont family as they slowly close up the farm for winter. Harvesting, pruning, stacking wood and making sure the animals are warm for the long winter are just a few of the many tasks it takes to maintain the farm. Gorgeous illustrations make this a perfect gift! — Whitney Kaaz

Description


A captivating exploration of how a family gets a farm ready for the snow of winter, Sleep Tight Farm lyrically connects each growing season to the preparations at the very end of the farm year. This beautiful and informative book paints a fascinating picture of what winter means to the farm year and to the family that shares its seasons, from spring's new growth, summer's heat, and fall's bounty to winter's well-earned rest. All year long the farm has worked to shelter us, feed us, keep us warm, and now it's time to sleep.
