Synopses & Reviews
Explore life on a farm in this addition to the bestselling Block Book series!
It's time to plant some crops, harvest the veggies, and make jam to take to the farmer's market! In this follow-up to Alphablock, Countablock, Dinoblock, Cityblock, Buildablock, and Marvel Alphablock, readers are introduced to what life is like on the farm. Like the previous titles, Farmblock explores a concept — in this case, seasons. From a rooster crowing at the crack of dawn to picking pumpkins for Halloween, there is so much to do all year-round! In keeping with the rest of the series, Farmblock features die-cut pages, gatefolds, and the charming art of British design team Peskimo.
"A riot of quirkiness and eccentricity, and the mood of the book, which shifts from droll humor to melancholy to gentle vulnerability, is unclassifiable — and just right." Kirkus
"Bright and colorful, including people of different races, abilities, and ages. . . Sure to be a crowd-pleaser for individual and small group sharing." SLJ Review
