Review of Kids on the Farm

A sweet, personal essay about what it means to grow up on a farm today. Nicely observed details. There's a low hum of some sound under the essay. I wanted more - or less. I never knew what the sound was, and if the sound is supposed to "bring" me to the farm, then I wanted to actually be there for a few seconds. Would love to hear some kids voices, even if only in the background.
