Book Review-- Texas Farm Girl: Reap What You Sow

Synopsis: Texas Farm Girl learns from her PawPaw what Reap What You Sow means when she makes a big mistake on the farm. The lesson learned from Reap What You Sow can be applied to all of us so that we can overcome adversity and Shine Like A Lone Star Pearl. Written and inspired by an actual Texas Farm Girl that grew up farming with her grandfather, it's a book and series you will want to be a part of. 

My Thoughts: Rebecca Crownover gives children and parents an inside look at farm life with Texas Farm Girl: Reap What You Sow. Crownover, who grew up helping out on her grandfather's farm, takes a real-life experience to teach children the value of doing a job right and correcting one's mistakes.

Kids get a look at how their food is grown by following the main character through an attempt to plant a corn field. It’s accompanied by eye-catching illustrations that will make the story all the more entertaining for a child. I liked that it's written in a down-to-earth way that doesn’t talk down to children, which I’m sure parents will appreciate. This book is part of a series intended for children 5 and up.
