I read this delightful book with my 5 and almost 7 year old Grandsons. They loved it, and could really relate, because we live on a farm. They did decide though that rather than weed or plant corn they would much rather play.
The oldest one was in envy of climbing the "mango" tree! He said he would love to have some of the sour fruit...right now!
The book is beautifully illustrated and drew them right in. Also enjoyed how Loren helped her Grandpa plant corn...and we counted with her...only Three seeds...not Four!! They were giggling!
I highly recommend this delightful read to share with you Children.
I received this book from the Author Heidy Ramos, and was not required to give a positive review!
