This edition of The Little Farm was written in 1942, so the farming methods portrayed here are distinctly old-fashioned, and distinctly, wonderfully nostalgic. And you know, little kids aren't going to necessarily know or care that farmers don't farm this way any more. Little kids are just going to like Farmer Small, they're going to enjoy watching him work his farm, and they are going to enjoy the streamlined, elegant, simple story that is just tailor-made for them.
