The BlogAbout Blogger Network recently sent me two beautiful hardback books, one to review and one to giveaway! Farm to Film, written and illustrated by Hannah Miles Pierrou, is a lovely ABC book for early readers but it's pretty enough to be displayed on your coffee table! Check out my review and then enter the giveaway for a copy of Farm to Film.

I love this book, and I'm long past the target age for Farm to Film! Hannah Miles Pierrou is the author and illustrator of this special book that is filled with easy-to-read text and gorgeous illustrations that both entertain and educate. From alpacas, to ladybugs, to zippers---the ABCs are used to take young readers on an alphabetical adventure around Pop and Gram's farm, and Pierrou uses mesmerizing text and soothing pastel colors to explain and illustrate the importance of these things that are found on the farm. Children will be charmed, but their parents and grandparents will especially delight in the nostalgic pictures that take them on a trip down memory lane. All of this is accomplished because 'Pop's Old CAMERA makes the perfect eye to VIEW the world' and you can imagine the discussion that will occur about this vintage camera with its 'rough leather case, buckles and ZIPPERS'.
Farm to Film is a wonderful book for families and it's pretty enough to display on your coffee table. I highly recommend this book as a great addition to both a home or school library!
I received a copy of this book from the author via BlogAbout Blogger Network, but there was no obligation for a positive review. These thoughts are my own.
