Farmyard Knits

Farmyard Knits
Title: Farmyard Knits
Author:
Fiona Goble
Description:

The farmer and his wife rise early to feed the chickens and milk the cows, then dozens of chores around the farm as they both make sure that everything is running smoothly. In this touching and amusing book you can teach a child all about a day in the farming life and knit the characters of the farmyard – animal and human, from the cock whose crowing welcomes in the day to the sheep who are herded into the barn as night falls. There is a squidgy tractor that aspirant young farmers will love to play with, and a cute knitted playmat with fields and hedges that can serve as everything from and action play setting during the day to a comfort blanket at night.

To finish things off, a pocket at the back of the book contains a sturdy card barn and a white picket fence, so that when the game is over your knits can be safely corralled until next time.
