Stanley the Farmer by William Bee [Review & Giveaway]

ISBN13: 9780857551115
Peachtree Publishers $14.95
Stanley has been seen here on Chat With Vera a couple of times already. Check him out .... Stanley's Garage and Stanley the Builder.

This sweet series of books will entertain and educate the young child. They are most likely suited for the little boy, but let's don't forget that girls love to learn about farms, garages, and building as well.

Let's take a look at what Stanley is up to now. He also has a special helper, Shamus. Little Woo helps a bit, too.

I like that Stanley's tools are all pictured in the front of the book so these pages can be used to help learn identification of tools. He has a very busy day preparing the field, spreading manure (phew!), and planting. At the end of the day, he does what Stanley always does.... bathes, eats, and goes to bed.

A delightful series and one I can recommend for your special young child.

Now for some special "Stanley Fun," Have your own event by clicking on this link, Stanley the Farmer Event, and find Stanley snacks to make, pages to color, things to match, etc.
Begins April 21 & ENDS May 5 @ 12:01 a.m. EDT.
