A captivating exploration of how a family gets a farm ready for the snow of winter, Sleep Tight Farm lyrically connects each growing season to the preparations at the very end of the farm year. This beautiful and informative book paints a fascinating picture of what winter means to the farm year and to the family that shares its seasons, from spring’s new growth, summer’s heat, and fall’s bounty to winter’s well-earned rest. All year long the farm has worked to shelter us, feed us, keep us warm, and now it’s time to sleep.

I’d never thought about some of the preparations that a farm must go through after the growing season ends. For example, I had no idea that raspberry bushes need to be cut back at the end of autumn to protect these plants from winter storms and ice. It was interesting to read about all of the work that goes into keeping livestock and crops safe between now and the beginning of spring.

None of the human characters in this tale were named, but I still got to know them well by seeing how carefully they took care of all of the living things that relied on them. The family who lived on and managed this farm clearly loved their work. They did everything they could to keep their animals happy and their fields well maintained. I couldn’t have imagined better people for this job. They only made the already-wholesome plot even better.

One of the things I enjoyed the most about this picture book was how it bid good night to so many different parts of a working farm. From the fields to the cord wood that will keep the farmhouse warm and cozy for the next several months, everything on this property was acknowledged for its contributions and gently nudged into resting happily until spring. There was something so sweet and gracious about that repetition.

Sleep Tight Farm: A Farm Prepares for Winter was a calm, cheerful look at everything farmers have to do to prepare for winter. I’d highly recommend it to any kid or curious adult who enjoys learning about where their food comes from.
