Zelma’s Farm tells the story of a little girl whose happy life is turned upside down by the tragic loss of her father and farm. Under the watchful eye of her Heavenly Father she vows to build a farm of her own. People bring her their unwanted animals and she takes them in. She creates a place where children find safety and beauty, while they learn the value of responsibility and hard work. Gardening, sugaring, beekeeping, animal care and apple picking are just some of the simple pleasures associated with farm life.
Zelma’s Farm shares how God calls the broken and unqualified to do his work in this world. He redeems and qualifies those He calls.
The simple text and beautiful luminous watercolor paintings by Bert Dodson are perfect for reading aloud to your child or for beginning readers to discover for themselves.
