Our Farm: By The Animals Of Farm Sanctuary is perfect for the farm animal lovers on our holiday gift list. Maya Gottfried's gorgeous poems are written in the distinctive voices of different animals and Robert Rahway Zakanitch's watercolors depict their vivid personalities.
The poems are attributed to the residents of Farm Sanctuary, a refuge and advocacy network for farm animals rescued from cruel conditions. The cast of characters includes a wise old cow named Maya, J.D. the piglet, Mayfly the rooster, a duck named Diego and Hilda the sheep. Our Farm is a great way to turn preschool-aged animal lovers into poetry lovers. While Farm Sanctuary promotes a vegan lifestyle, Our Farm elides the nitty gritty of industrial farming and instead focuses on the stories and voices of the animals. The book is $17.99 from Farm Sanctuary.
