Where the Meadowlark Sang
Cherished Scenes From An Artist's ChildhoodBook - 2003
Selected as an "Our Choice" book by The Canadian Children's Book Centre
Artist Hazel Litgus takes us back to the simpler times in Where the Meadowlark Sang, her beautifully illustrated book about growing up on a prairie farm.
Hazel's delightful paintings and drawings, accompanied by her charming stories of rural
life, bring to life the most cherished memories of her childhood. Written simply and from
the heart, this is a book for children of all ages.
Where the Meadowlark Sang includes Hazel's accounts of harvest
and hard work, of domestic chores and school days. But life on the farm wasn't all work.
Hazel also remembers the wondrous prairie landscape that was her playground, the games and
pastimes that the children shared, and the important events that brought the community
together in celebration. This book is an affectionate record of a vanishing way of life.
