Miss MacDonald Has a Farm (Library Binding)

Miss MacDonald Has a Farm By Kalee Gwarjanski, Elizabet Vukovic (Illustrator) Cover Image
Not Available From


In this female-forward spin on the traditional children's song "Old MacDonald", readers can join Miss MacDonald on her vegetable farm and see all the work that goes into growing healthy and delicious produce.

"Miss MacDonald has a farm,
She loves things that grow!"

E-I-E-I-GROW! With a "weed-weed" here and a "pick-pick" there, young readers can follow Miss MacDonald as she tends to her vegetable farm. It's a rollicking, rhyming read-aloud that ends in a community feast and celebrates themes of healthy eating, plant-based meals, local produce, gardening, seasons, and female farmers.
