Farming has remained one of the constant things despite the ever-changing nature of modern society.

From author Laurence Tysoe comes a new and educational children’s picture book that will take young readers to “Farmer John’s Farm”. In this work, children will learn fun tidbits about agriculture, livestock and poultry, which they might not have encountered in ordinary city life.

The tale follows school children from the cities visiting a farm in the countryside, and how they learn about various farm animals, from chickens to pigs, as well as the charms of country life. Farming has remained one of the constant things despite the ever-changing nature of modern society, the farmers and their livelihoods are the source of the food eaten by families in cities everywhere, and Tysoe’s fun-filled picture book gives children a renewed appreciation of this fact.

“Farmer John’s Farm” is an enjoyable educational reading experience with vibrant illustrations that show them just how agriculture works and how people live in the country.
