This is a fascinating book, wonderful illustrations, and a good look at the old days as people used everything they had and didn't waste much at all. Where they worked hard and had a great work ethic to pass down to their children. Highly recommend it.

I remember being fascinated by the illustrations when I was in first or second grade.

I really liked the subject matter of this book. However, it had an awkward style for reading aloud. At the beginning, the sentences were very short. The sentences increased in length going through the book. The last eleven pages of text were all one sentence. That was not best practice, or a good model for literature, in my opinion. I am glad we read it, but it didn't make it to our favorites list.

Simple and perfect. This children's book about family, seasons, good work, taking joy in the everyday, and self-reliance is close to my heart.

Historical. Family. Hard work. Farm life. Enjoyment.
