Shon thinks his wife Sian’s work at home on the farm is nothing compared to his efforts in the field. When Sian agrees to trade places, Shon expects an easy, relaxing day. After all, there’s just the butter to churn, the oats to grind, and the cow to take out to the field — or so he thinks. In the comedy of errors that ensues, Shon learns a much-needed lesson about counting your blessings. Best-selling author Eric Maddern’s droll narrative and Paul Hess’s stylishly funny watercolors make this an entertaining story with a message.
