Anita Lamb Releases New Book on Joy on the Farm

Dannevirke, New Zealand

Anita Lamb publishes a wonderful true-to-life storybook based on a hill country farm in New Zealand. Bundled with creativity, "Split, Second & Romney and the Man in the Big Blue overalls" (published by Xlibris NZ) portrays the vivid tale of three lambs and their life full of experiences.

"Split, Second, and Romney and the Man in the Big Blue Overalls" is an immersive book comprised of two stories. Lamb initially gives readers a storytelling heading dog called Blue. Blue tells the story of Split and Second, twin lambs who have had a dramatic life since the start. The two sheep meet an orphan lamb named Romney. All three of them quickly become best friends as they hang out together. Second becomes the next storyteller shortly after; she talks about their exciting life growing up on the farm. Readers will find themselves adoring the lives of these animals.

Full of laughter and imagination, this book is ideal for children who love animals; it gives them insight of life on a farm in the spring.
