What starts out as a visit to Gram’s house, turns into a big day on the farm for Eve. Come along for the ride as Gram, Eve, and Penny, the farm dog, zoom around exploring the flora and meeting the animals. There are curly-haired pigs, a mama cow and her calf, giant horses, wooly sheep, furry donkeys, clucking chickens, a tall llama, curious goats, and even Mischievous Misty, the most curious goat of all.
Find out what happens when Eve doesn’t want her fun-filled day to end in this true and delightful story from The Wool Family Farm for children ages three to nine.
Gram and Eve and Penny drive through the woods until the path is blocked by a fallen tree. On the way back, Eve sniffs strange plants growing along the creek, but tosses them overboard until she finds a ginger lily.
Eve giggles and Penny barks as they encounter smooth pigs and curly pigs, mama cows, and baby cows. Eve giggles and Penny barks when horses, sheep, and donkeys come over to greet them. Eve giggles and Penny barks when it’s time to feed the chickens and goats.
But when it’s time to go in, Eve wants to keep riding. Maybe they should’ve quit while they were ahead.
