Under the Barnyard Light: Sweet Country Book, Win Yours Now!

Under the Barnyard Light is an absolutely precious book for little ones, whether they are being read to or are learning to read. I honestly can’t say enough about it. There are many book reviews in our children’s book collection but this one reached my soul.

Under the Barnyard Light: Sweet Country Book @Crafty_Zoo @UnderTheBarnyardLightHonestly, it brought back so many childhood memories for me. Growing up in the country, I recall going out in the cold and caring for our calves, sheep, horses and dogs. At the time, it was often a chore that was not at all desirable, especially in the winter months. Going out to break ice in the freezing cold is not a pleasant experience. Irregardless, if you do own or have ever owned animals you know that it is not an option.

Aside from the nostalgia, another thing I loved about Under the Barnyard Light was the realistic images and the adorable rhyming scheme. It isn’t corny at all, it is instead purposeful with light fun.

As one who grew up on a small farm, it reminded me of the lessons we learn there. Hard work, love, sacrifice and, when necessary, the ability to just ‘get things done’ even when they are the last thing on earth we want to do.

Of course, as an adult it’s easy to forget that. I am most certainly grateful for that lesson I learned as a child. While I do ignore it a lot, when it comes time I can generally suck whatever it is and just dive into the task.

About the Book

This adorable book, Under the Barnyard Light, was written by Carla Crane Osborne and Illustrated by Brandon Dorman. The blurb is easy enough for you to pull up, by all means click the link and check it out but still, I’ll post it for you. This is NOT my work, this is literally from the back of the book:

Even in the dark of the winter, the animals need to be fed. Step into the magical world of a young girl on a farm full of small wonders. Beneath the barnyard light, feed warm milk to the calves, catch snowflakes on your tongue, and give a kiss to Dandy the horse.

The quiet glow of Under the Barnyard Light will cast a spell over readers young and old.

Lessons From the Barnyard

As most of us parents use whatever we can to teach lessons, this book is full of possibilities! It is easy to talk about the book, as I truly did enjoy it. There are calves and horses that we can teach the kids about in the book and it’s a great opportunity to talk about how the dark isn’t always scary.

There’s more to it though.

This book can be used to teach a good work ethic by getting our chores done, even when it’s cold or we just don’t want to. About having a good attitude and showing love in all we do as she demonstrates throughout the book.
