Down on the farm, Stanley is sowing seeds. Will they grow?

It’s going to be a busy day on Stanley’s farm! From plowing the field, to planting the seeds, to harvesting the wheat, Stanley has a lot to do. Luckily, his friends Shamus and Little Woo lend a helping hand.

William Bee’s wonderful series featuring Stanley, an adorable hamster, is great for readers at a transitional age between board books and picture books. Stanley the Farmer will appeal to young children wanting to know about occupations and machines.
