Book of the Month:

Barn at Night

Written by: Michelle Houts
Illustrated by: Jen Betton

When you grow up on a farm, adventures happen all day long—even at night! Barn at Night follows a father and a daughter as they care for farm animals in two visits to the barn on a working farm. First, waking early to do the routine, daily work in the pre-dawn hours, and in the mid-might visit to the barn to help a horse who’s foaling. Written in lyrical poetry, the story shows how farmers feed and care for their animals even in the coldest weather, in both situations that are planned for and for when animals need help—even when humans should be sleeping. Barn at Night features cows, barn cats, horses, and other farm animal friends and their babies’ names, for fun vocabulary building for young readers – and it ends with the beautiful surprise arrival of a new foal.
