Mosey's Field Barbara Lockhart, Illustrated by Heather Crow Book Review



Mosey, a long-legged, lumbering kind of dog, has a napping place in the middle of a corn field, but when the plow comes through, followed later by the planter, Mosey can no longer find his spot. As the corn grows, Mosey's adventures in the field include exploring tunnels in the corn rows, chasing rabbits, finding relief from the summer’s heat, and, at the end of the season, experiencing the terrifying (to him) appearance of a combine. Mosey's Field illuminates the beauty of the rural landscape, the change in seasons, and the progression of agricultural methods. While Mosey continues the search for his special place, children are not only connected to the environment, but the important concept of where food comes from. Early Reader; Ages 5-8.

Barbara Lockhart, a retired kindergarten teacher, lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where she's been watching fields for years. Heather Crow is an award-winning artist and art teacher. She lives in Easton, Maryland.

My thoughts:

What an adorable fun book. My kids loved this book and I can attest that it has been read several times already in our home. Living in a farming community makes it that much more appealing. The pictures are perfect for the age group of the readers. I love that the pictures look like water colors. The reading is easy enough for a child to read and comprehend the story.

Mosey just captures your heart from the beginning. You can help but to cheer him on to find his napping place. His adventure is enduring as the seasons change. Mosey is persistent at finding his special spot in the middle of the corn field.
