In Honor of Farmer Brown

We like works by children's author Doreen Cronin and illustrator Betsy Lewin. So in honor of Duck in Duck for President, here is our "first page":

Running a farm is very hard work.

At the end of each day Farmer Barcak is covered from head to toes in hay, cow hair, seeds, sprouts, feathers, milk, filth, mud, muck and tea stains.

She doesn't smell very good either.

Lamb: What is that smell?
Ewe: What does it smell like?
Lamb: Cow and cow stuff.
Ewe: Oh, that's just me. (after milking the stubborn cow who did not want to come into the nice cozy barn to be milked but instead would rather be out in the rain, mud, muck, and well, cow stuff.)
