 The day's cycle on a traditional farm--how many times has that theme been reiterated?--but rarely with the grace and quiet charm of Tresselt's 1949 text, here updated and newly illustrated by a Dane whose expansive paintings exquisitely capture the dramas of dawn, sun-dappled mid-day, and a passing summer storm. An unusually beautiful book whose new European flavor will be apparent only to careful observers of sky and fields. Don't discard the old edition with the Duvoisin illustrations, but do add this one. (Picture book. 3-7)
