To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I found it more of a kids book than for adults. I enjoyed reading it although each chapter was only a page or two. Less pics and more substance is needed to reach a 5 star rating. I give it a 3.5 stars. Nothing wrong with this book it just lacks in depth details.
This is a sweet little book that is a great reference for anybody interested in farmlife. There is no story here, just farm-connected information that some will find obvious, others esoteric -- candle making, parts of a pig, root cellaring, which chickens are 'egg' or 'meat' chickens, etc. Lots of fun stuff - if you are interested in farmlife. There are some neat recipes, too. For a NYC girl married to an authentic, knowledgable farm guy, Julia Rothman has done her homework, offering us exposure in a cursory way that is informative and full of charming illustrations.
