The Farmer and the Clown by Marla Frazee. A small clown boy bounces unnoticed off of the circus train out on the wide empty prairie. Empty, except for a solitary old farmer, who comes to the rescue of the boy. Too far away to signal the train, he takes the little clown by the hand, and returns to his tiny home to care for the boy ’til the train might return. With muted color and simple pictures that somehow convey so much (watch the priceless facial expressions), this wonderful wordless book describes the “Now what?” as the unsure old man and the lost little clown begin a friendship, eating, working, and playing together. Egg juggling anyone? At last, when the little clown’s family comes for him, the tiny clown and the farmer part as dear friends, and all is well. Your littles will love telling you this story as they “read” the pictures to you. See this book listed in our catalog
