Note to Parents
Helga Moser bases her Pleasant Valley Farm Series on actual incidents that happened on her parents' farm. As you read the stories to your children, they will learn, along with the animals, some basic lessons of life.
This book will help your child grow in character as he learns along with Danny that all play is not all fun. Like many children, Danny the workhorse had a lazy streak and didn't like to work. Danny gets his wished-for vacation from work, only to find that a life of ease is one of no challenge and no reward. When Danny's attitude toward work changes, life becomes sweet and good again.
