The Farmer and the Circus
by Marla Frazee

Goodreads Description:
The farmer follows his new friends to the circus in this whimsical and touching conclusion to the trilogy from two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee that began with the beloved The Farmer and the Clown.
The little clown and monkey miss their friend the farmer. They spend their days playing farmer together, until one day they get a surprise. Farmer has come to visit the circus! What will happen when he meets the rest of the circus family?

My Thoughts:
If you've not yet "read" a wordless picture book, The Farmer and the Circus is a great place to start! The whimsical artwork from master storyteller Marla Frazee is not only entertaining, it shares the story of how a family can be created by all sorts of characters - especially when there is love in their hearts. I highly recommend this final book in The Farmer trilogy to young people from the ages of two to seven!
