Paul is a farmer. He mows, he rakes, and he digs. Then his plants begin to grow. But what happens when it doesn’t rain? Paul doesn’t despair, because he knows the rain is never very far away.

Paul’s story is shown through imaginative illustrations. Vegetation in abundance, raindrops filling the page, and a starry night along with the fullest moon tell Paul’s story in pictures. Finally, his abundant harvest is pictured in rows and rows of colorful plants.

The Farmer is a creative tale of a man who never rests. Kids will enjoy this interesting perspective of farming.
