Pick of the Week: The Pen That Pa Built

The Pen That Pa Built by David Edwards, illustrated by Ashley Wolff (Tricycle Press, 2007)

In this beautifully illustrated cumulative tale, author David Edwards and Ashley Wolff introduce the reader to a nostalgic look at farming. We learn how sheep are raised and how their wool is spun into yarn for making wool blankets. Young children interested in animals and life on the farm will delight in this historical picture book.
