Hardscrabble HarvestAuthor: Dahlov Ipcar
Publisher: Islandport Press
So begins the charming story in verse about the running battle between a farm family and the mischievous animals that plunder their fields. Crows peck at freshly sown seeds, ducks eat at new strawberry plants, rabbits nibble on tender lettuces, and raccoons dine on ears of ripening corn. All summer long the younger farmer and his wife are hard-pressed to protect their crops.
But the autumn comes at last, and the family is ready to celebrate its harvest –bushes of rd tomatoes, cellar full of apples for cider, and pumpkins for pie. In rollicking verse and wonderful illustrations, Dahlov Ipcar tells all of the hard work that goes into making a bountiful fall harvest.
