Old Manhattan Has Some Farms: E-I-E-I-Grow!

OldManhattanHasSomeFarmsWritten by Susan Lendroth, Illustrated by Kate Endle


The idea of this fun book is that, no matter where you live, you can grow food for your family to eat. It’s a great idea for young readers! The author has used the familiar song “Old MacDonald Has a farm” and familiar city names and even the White House in the new verses that communicate facts about ways to be green and to grow wherever you are! Fresh food for children is important to everyone – and worth singing about. Go to www.babypantsmusic.com and click on ‘songs for books’ to hear the song. It’s great for dancing or role play!
