Farmyard Beat by Lindsey Craig; illustrated by Marc Brown

Farmyard Beat by Lindsey Craig

As the sun sets, the animals in the farmyard should be settling down for the night. But in Lindsey Craig’s Farmyard Beat:

“Chicks can’t sleep. Chicks can’t sleep.
Chicks can’t sleep
‘cause they got that beat.”

And so begins a toe-tapping dance party where each animal’s noisy contribution to the beat wakes up another. The chicks go peep and wake up sheep. Cat’s purr and meow wake up cow. The racket grows until it is so loud that Farmer Sue comes to investigate the noise. Of course, she joins in and the entire farmyard dances to the beat until they “fall in a heap. Asleep.”

By Margaret Hathaway

From Maine to Arizona and back again, Margaret and Karl and their dog, Godfrey, travel across America, visiting dairy farms and goat meat ranches. They meet a colorful cast of farmers, cheese makers, breeders, and chefs. They sample cheese from all over the country, learn how to make goat cheese themselves, keep a farm, care for the animals, and learn the protocols of participating in festivals and auctions. Once again back in Maine, they have a goat-themed wedding, and go on to purchase ten acres of pasture and their own herd of goats.
