An instant classic.--BookPage (starred review)

Infused with cheer and playfulness.--Horn Book Magazine (starred review)

Quietly lyrical.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

The Pumphreys have created a book that's both timeless and au courant.--New York Times Book Review

This affectionate, pithy, and eloquent homage to farm life...is uncommonly charming and rewards repeat readings.--Booklist (starred review)

This gentle chronicle of years blazes with the power of family, determination, and perseverance.--School Library Journal (starred review)
