Every bale of hay has a little bit of summer sun stored in the heart of it— learn from a mother-daughter team how hay is made!

This beautifully illustrated tale presents a daughter’s tender memories of growing up in rural America-from chasing mourning doves across shafts of sunlight and playing hide-and-seek between the cows to swinging from a rope into a feathered of hay.
