Cover of Mosey's FieldBook Signing with Writer Barbara Lockhart & Illustrator Heather Crow

Barbara Lockhart, a retired kindergarten teacher, lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where she’s been watching fields for years. Heather Crow is an award-winning artist and art teacher. She lives in Easton, Maryland. This is a story about Mosey, a long-legged, lumbering kind of dog, has a napping place in the middle of a corn field, but when the plow comes through, followed later by the planter, Mosey can no longer find his spot. Mosey’s Field illuminates the beauty of the rural landscape, the change in seasons, and the progression of agricultural methods. While Mosey continues the search for his special place, children are not only connected to the environment, but the important concept of where food comes from. Early reader–ages 5-8.
