Children's Literature. Sustainability. Art. The sun rises and sets on a little farm. The farmer sleeps, bugs invade, farmers fight back, but the people still feast. Storyteller Jay Mead's simple and provocative intergenerational picture story follows the life of a farm, through the seasons, with gorgeous bright color images throughout and a brief text. In its afterword, A LITTLE FARM STORY emphasizes sustainability on local farms and community sustained agriculture. Mead travels with the story to schools and farmers markets. A member of Wise Fool Puppet Intervention, Jay Mead formerly worked with Bread and Puppet Theater.
