Watch the New animated version of 'Farmer Dan and His Big Brother Stan'
Written by Rod Simpson
Rod Simpson likes to focus on bringing his stories to children. He attends country fairs and agricultural shows, visits schools and nurseries and shares his books through book readings. Rod’s simple philosophy sums up why his books are so appealing to children, “All children can relate to farms and animals, even if you don't live in the countryside, because my stories are bringing nature and the countryside to them. The books are almost always written from first hand experience, even though some may seem to be the work of fiction, and it is these funny real-life situations, like horses being pulled free from the mud, or bulls unhinging the farm gate, which I think children love to read about! They make me giggle and smile and hopefully that’s how my readers feel too!"
