Item No. 008833
by Jane Meyer, illustrated by Ned Gannon
"There once was a woman who planted some wheat..." So begins this rhythmical, festive children's book about the joy of a farmer as she works to grow the wheat and bake that bread that she will offer back to her Creator in Eucharistic celebration. The vibrant images—reminiscent of fields in the American mid-west—sparkle in light-saturated, warm jewel-tones and provide the perfect backdrop for the story of a woman in love with the earth, and her labor, and equally in love with her God.
A picture book for preschool and up.
