Reviews

For centuries we've counted on children to take real responsibilities for the animals that provided us with food and companionship. In the process, kids not only grew food, but they also grew their own sense of themselves as capable beings. Barnyard Kids gives kids the tools to dream about and plan for raising farm animals, empowering anyone who reads it to imagine a life with farm animals and then to act to make it real; it will have a special place on the bookshelf in the barn at The Farm School. - Ben Holmes, founder, The Farm School

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
