A year in the life of the Bennett family on their 150 acre farm in Ohio is told through the voices of the five Bennett children and their parents.

Buy this one. Lots of fun and full of real life.
This book has enough words to make it more appropriate for children who can read independently. I believe it treats farms and farmers fairly. And it is an honest portrait of farm life(I grew up on and around farms).
Still In Mind
The photos are authentic. The children make the pictures come alive. Good to teach the season as well Our Farm
It is nice to have a book that is like a multi-person diary of the events in a simple farm-life family who live & love their home and career choice(s).
Wife read it after daughter got it from library. Really liked it & thought it was interesting to see what the family grew/killed on their farm to eat as well as discussion of all the equipment they use to do their farming job(s).
This book is very well written, and is perfect for my 10 year old son. Living near downtown Los Angeles, there's not much in the way of true, rural farm life out here. So in our quest to help him satisfy his curiosity about what real life on a farm might be like for children, we were so blessed to come across this book in our local library. My son does not particularly care for reading, but once he got his hands on this book, he's not been able to put it down! He has read the book cover to cover four times now, and he's asked us to make sure we purchase this book for him so we can finally return the original to the library. The authors have successfully portrayed rural farm life, and all the struggles and blessings each season brings. It gives a true picture of what it's like for children to grow up on a farm, and is a fun read for children and adults alike. We highly recommend this book to all who have even the slightest curiosity about farm life!!
I really loved reading this book! The book is written for children but I enjoyed reading it and I am 41 years old! The book made me think about the dreams that I had as a child of living on a farm when I grew up. That dream never came to fruition but reading this book helped to give me a more realistic idea of what living on a livestock farm would be like. I immediately got into the story and I read in amazement all the kinds of experiences the children have lived through. As a parent, I enjoyed seeing this family working together - everyone has a job and they all seem to enjoy helping to make their farm a sucess. What a wonderful childhood these children are having! Thanks to their family and Michael J. Rosen for letting us share a bit of it.
I had ordered this book over a year ago when my son was born. I just got around to reading it. I loved it. It is packed with so much interesting information (for us city kids). I've never read a book that was written from the kids point of view that still kept it interesting for the adults as well. I read it to my 14 month old so he can enjoy the book as he grows.
