This WWW book follows a farmer and his family throughout a typical day, from waking up early to taking care of animals and using a tractor in the fields to the end of his work day and a little time for family and fun.

The farmer and his family are the focus of this book about a typical day in the life of a farmer, rather than animals and machinery, giving young readers a realistic sense of what life on a farm is like. When does he wake up? What does he wear? How does he take care of the animals? When does he take a break, and when is his work finished for the day? A puzzle at the end of the book lets children test what they have learned.
