Farm Notebook - A Notebook Companion™ to Farm Anatomy

Go on a trip to the farm to learn about edible flowers, barn birds, planting an orchard and your way around the toolshed. The country is brought to life through Julia Rothman’s charming and beloved Farm Anatomy. Take the scenic route and help your child absorb more when you pair Farm Anatomy with our Farm Notebook.

Many homeschooling families incorporate the study of farm life into their lessons. We have enjoyed using Farm Anatomy in our studies and have referred to it often for reference, as the beautiful hand-drawn sketches bring the world of the farm to life, even if you live in the city.

The Farm Notebook is intended to be used alongside Farm Anatomy. Your student will learn all about soil, farm animals, plants, country crafts and more through written narration, drawing, and labeling.

Whether you live in the hustle and bustle of the city or the rural charm of the country, Farm Anatomy will entertain and educate through beautiful illustrations and topics such as how barns are built. With the publisher’s permission, we have created Farm Notebook to accompany the popular and beloved Farm Anatomy.

This Notebook Companion™ follows seamlessly with the topics in the book and include places for written narration of information read, sketches of objects found on the farm, labeling and diagramming, and more.
