Mara B loves her hay! She is often enjoying the round bale when I arrive to visit her. While on our travels to Iowa we were delighted to meet Arthur Geisert, the illustrator of “Haystack” – a beautiful picture book with exquisite colored etchings. “Haystack” teaches that a haystack is more than just a pile of hay. No wonder Mara loves it. Many people like the smell of hay, especially when horses are eating it.
