Country Baby

Orca. Feb. 2024. 20p. Board $10.95. ISBN 9781459836334.
PreS-K–A day in the country begins for a young child by putting on their boots. A journey through mud puddles, encounters with farm animals, and a trip to the garden fill the day until it is time for a bath and getting tucked into bed. The illustrations feature a brown-skinned child and mother; the love between the two of them is captured very effectively in Rooney’s lovely illustrations.
VERDICT A trip to the country is always special, even for those who only read about it; this title is a sweet offering for story time or one on one.
