When the Belcher family fulfills a lifelong dream of moving from the big city to a beautiful little farm, they don’t know much about farming. Melody, the youngest daughter, longs for a horse, and Crystal, her sister, wants sheep. But Rosemary, their mother, has a different wish…she’s always dreamed of having a llama! As time goes on, all the family members get their wishes granted, along with many, many more as the real tails of Easy Yoke Farm begin to arrive: fluffy and soft, short or wooly, long and swishy, and of course feathered. Before long, sheep, goats, geese, turkeys, dogs, cows, horses and even a herd of llamas roam the pastures.
From bottle-feeding baby goats, to singing “Old MacDonald” to soothe a cow in labour, to receiving life-lessons from a wise and generous guardian llama, Rosemary and her family undergo a dizzying learning curve in their wild and wonderful adventures on the farm. This sweetly entertaining introduction to farm life incorporates subtle lessons in both science and spirituality that enhance and contextualize these gentle stories. Those who must be read to, those who want to read for themselves, and those who want to read to others will all be enchanted by The Real Tails of Easy Yoke Farm.
