"Simple stylized shapes and clear bright colors make Gibbons' landscapes easy for young children to comprehend." --Booklist
"Gibbons depicts aspects of farm life with her characteristic bright colors and stylized forms. Every season brings its own specific chores, indoors and out, its own crops and its own food. There are the forces of nature, and the ways the farmer harnesses or copes with the elements using mechanical devices."--Publishers Weekly
