Caldecott Medal Winner 1980, Reading Rainbow book.

Ox-Cart Man is a simple and rhythmic story of a man who fills his ox-cart with all the goods his family has produced over the last year and takes them to market. After selling everything, including his cart and his ox, he buys a few items and walks home. The book traces a year in the life of a New England farm family in the 1800's. The values of hard work, patience, family, and contentment are woven throughout the story.
