A Farmer I'll Be relates the enchanting world of rural life through the evocative poetry of  Award-winning poet Margaret Grote.

One example of Mother Nature's magic is written about and illustrated with a beautiful rainbow. A sample of a part of Grote's prose about a rainbow reads:

The road must start and end
Some say in a pot of gold
And I'll bring that back with me
If I dare to be so bold.

Grote's prose and Marcia Wheelan Coles' illustrations transform the book into a vibrant and captivating visual masterpiece. Through a perfect blend of meticulous detail, vivid colors, and imaginative elements, Coles brings Grote's unique and engaging world to life. Coles' incredible talent gives a face to the characters conjured up by Grote in this children's book, immersing readers in the charm and activities of Grote's cast.
