This book fell into my hands just after we had lost our family farm, first having to sell off the animals, and then the land and then the house, our home. My youngest was two, and I could not read this book without tears in my eyes. I imagine it is just as beautiful to anyone who doesn't so closely relate to it but I can't tell. All I know is that I am very glad to have it even now that we have a new home and are (hopefully) growing a new farm. The then 2yo is now nine, and delights to read his own story, as if it was written for him.
