Product Description

Product Description

In A Real Farm Girl, Susan Ioannou tells the story of a young city girl's adventures while visiting her grandmother's farm in the 1940s. Mary wants to prove that she can handle farm chores. She helps her Uncle Louis collect eggs from the chicken coop, milk the cows, and feed the pigs. The chores are not as easy as she thought. She gets pecked by the chickens, is chased by a bull, and has a manure mishap. But she doesn't give up, determined to become a real farm girl.

A Real Farm Girl can be read as a continuing story, or in single episodes. Each chapter is long enough to share out loud, and short enough for an eager young reader to tackle alone.

From the Author

I wrote A Real Farm Girl for children ages 8-10 to enjoy, but also to learn about Canada's rural past. How did it feel to work and play in a time before surfing the Web and video games were invented? Were children then the same or different? What made them happy or sad? By giving each character a unique voice, and building scenes with vivid settings and action, I have tried to bring an earlier era to life.

HASH(0x9f3147c8) out of 5 stars A glorious reading experience. March 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
A Real Farm Girl is a glorious reading experience for a young girl or boy. Its action occurs on an old-fashioned farm complete with chamber pots under the bed, chickens laying eggs for young girls to gather, weasels to prey on the chickens, barn cats, pigs, cows to milk, and even a bull. Young Mary's dad is away at war so she spends time on her grandmother's farm where she learns farm ways so she can prove she belongs." - Karen Shewbridge, The St. John's Telegram
