On the Vermont farm where young Berty lives, the year turns like a slow wheel, and new discoveries and old traditions grace each season. There is always time to explore, to watch the men cut ice on the pond, to savor Mama's hot cider, and to watch the stars come out. Rosemary Wells and Susan Jeffers vividly evoke a time gone by in this celebration of the American family. Rosemary Wells is the acclaimed author and/or illustrator of over fifty books for children, most of which she also illustrated. She lives in Westchester County, New York. Susan Jeffers's award-winning work includes Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, The Midnight Farm,and Hiawatha (all Dial).
