I read this in jr. high or earlier. I loved it. It even has a recipe for yeast starter, which I made. Very cool book. I want to re-read it sometime soon.

"The Bread Sister of Sinking Creek" is an "eh" book not that good of a book the author needs to add more details about the people.

I read this book years ago (like in 4th grade) and all I remember was that this book was the one the started my love of reading. I'm sure if I reread it I could find all kinds of things I didn't like, but simply because this is the one that started it all, it gets five stars. I'm forever grateful.

Read this and the following books when the author came to speak at my elementary school. Distinctly remember liking the books but being frustrated by his comments about writing which directly contradicted everything I, a budding author I was sure, thought to be true about the craft. Oh well.
