 Boots, boots, and more boots.  Lisl H. Detlefsen and Renee Kurilla have written a children’s picture book all about the kinds of boots for all and their purposes on a farm, as they go through all the seasons and the Farm Bootschores that they are used.  They show and tell which boots go with whom.  They also show many different boots and what they look like.  There are boots for all occasions.  ‘Farm Boots’ makes a great picture book for teachers in Day Care and Preschool to teach about what to wear in types of weather and to do work on a farm.  Which boots go with what chore or what kinds of fun?  They give a glossary of the boots, from rubber boots to snow boots.  Some other lessons a teacher could teach using this picture book could be to name the chores that are done on a farm and name the ways they also have fun.  They can name all the animals they see in the book.  Renee has drawn beautiful and colorful pictures that depict the seasons and the chores that each kind of boot would be necessary to wear.  The glossy pages and the big, bold typeface that was chosen will make it easy for small hands to turn the pages and begin to read pictures and words.
