Old Manhattan Had Some Farms- E-I-E-I-Grow! Picture Book

Add to Babylist

In this new take on "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," the farmers are city dwellers and the farms consist of rooftops, empty lots, hydroponic labs, patios, and other urban nooks and crannies. No matter where you live, you can grow food! Each spread includes a method of urban farming in a different city- Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC (the White House!), Toronto, and Manhattan, of course. The book includes a link to a free downloadable song by Caspar Babypants. I created the illustrations will acrylic gouache on black paper. The images are very colorful and appealing to children of ages. The book was written by Susan Lendroth and published by Charlesbridge. It's also a Junior Library Guild Selection winner!

Looking for something custom?

I love custom orders! Contact me and we can work together to make sure you get the collage you're looking for. I can recreate images that are listed in my shop or on my website. You are not obligated to buy it unless you are 100% satisfied. The only exception to this policy is if you are asking me to create an image that is outside of my normal repertoire. Again, we can discuss details. Turn around time for a custom piece is generally a couple of weeks. Once the piece is complete I will email you an image of the final product.
