Clover

  • Clover is a poignant picture bookabout trusting you own ability to make decisions and building self-reliance.

     

    Around Clover’s family’s goat farm, there are plenty of things to do on any given day, from picking blueberries to collecting clams. But making decisions, even choosing something to do, is a great source of hesitation for young Clover — that is, until one day, when the child’s beloved goat, Peony, wanders too far from the farm.

     

    In order to bring Peonyback home safely, Clover will have to learn to act quickly and decisively.
