“Why do you have to go to work again?” Young children often wonder why parents must head off to work and can’t stay to play. There’s a better answer to this question than “to make money,” and this delightful picture book reveals it.
The story follows a farmer and his wife who live and work on their farm. Each day while the farmer is hard at work, he meets an animal with a need. Sarah the Sheep needs a safe place to stay. Peter the Pig needs food. Holly the Horse needs new hay. The farmer gives with an open heart. At the same time, he discovers how his life and work have meaning.
This delightfully illustrated tale will teach young children about the value of hard work and the joy of helping others the way Jesus would.
