This adaption was excellent. Almanzo's love for horses and food was a focal point in the story!
Almanzo and his family enter items from their farm in the county fair. Almanzo waits impatiently as the judges examine the different pumpkins, hoping that his pumpkin entry will win.
A perfect book to read before exploring a rural fair (or after the fair to make connections and reminisce.).
I had read Farmer Boy to my boys last year so they enjoyed revisiting Almanzo.
