Phyllis Alsdurf is a book I found at the library recently. It is a picture book about a girl helping her dad with milking on the farm. It talks about the daily milking chores. The pictures reminded me more of my grandma's farm than my own because it talks about milk contained in cream cans. If you teach elementary students, this book would make a great addition to a collection of books about farms. Even if you don't have kids to read to, any former farm kid would appreciate the story and pictures contained in the book.
