Every week, my son and I head to the library and/or thrift store to stock up on books related to the theme we are learning about. Last week, we found some really adorable, colorful, creative, enriching and engaging books (you know, all of those things us moms look for in a book for our child) to supplement our learning on farms. Here is what we found, including some of what we already had…
