This lovely summer picture book by Liz Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Marla Frazee is one to share often. It is a Caldecott Honor of 2010 and ‘know wonder,’ it won awards as it cultivates a feeling of togetherness from families to towns all across America while enjoying the wonderful resources brought from the land. Also the use of lines in this book are fantastic and the pictures bring together the young, the old, and diverse cultures in a natural harmonious way. I came across this book in a literacy class for children. It was an excellent read for my family when they were young. From the easy going poetic verse to the glorious understanding of peace and harmony, check this book out!
