about

Spend a rooster summer on the farm with these irresistible read-aloud poems.

For the brother and sister in this novel in verse, each day begins with a barnyard wakeup call. During a summer spent on their grandparents'' farm, they collect eggs from the chicken coop, put on shows for city folks in passing trains, fill in for the farm dog by barking the cows home and dance around the perfectly ripening watermelon growing in Grandma''s garden. All of these barnyard adventures happen in the company of Rexter the rooster, Seed-Sack the mule and Ginger-Tea the farm dog - animal friends that will steal readers'' hearts over the course of a carefree rooster summer.

Based on award-winning poet Robert Heidbreder''s childhood, these irresistible read-aloud poems show the tender relationship between children and their grandparents. Madeline Kloepper brings the cast of lovable human and animal characters to life with her vintage art style. This early novel in verse about the simple joys of childhood on a farm is nostalgic yet timeless.
