Harvest Days

Many of us are so removed from the process of growing things that we don't even realize that there is such a thing as harvest time. In the past this was a time of year when people of all ages celebrated the fruitfillness of the season. With these books you can help children to reconnect with the farmer's calendar, so that they can appreciate our connection to the land.
