    1. This book is a darling family romp, with a wonderful push for industry and self-sufficiency. I don't think we all need to give up our current lives and move to a farm, but there is still a lot of wisdom in this story, very relevant to our current economic struggles. I also loved the family interplay - the patience, love, and creativity that they fostered in one another. The illustrations were beautiful, though I wish there had been more of them. It would, perhaps, seem a little long to young rea [...]

    2. When I was younger the library in my old home town had this book in their children’s section and I loved it. Then they got rid of it and for years I suffered its lack in silence. Finally I realized that I needed to read it again and so I asked for it for a Christmas present. My copy is very old and in a protective cover and my father told me that it was extremely difficult to find so I am very careful with it. It is the story of an American family who lives in a modern apartment filled with †[...]

    3. Equal parts charm and WWII-era propaganda, this book was a sweet reading experience. I loved the Machiavellian grandmother and her farm-wise ways. I loved the reverence for Art as well as Labor that is evident throughout. The story held few surprises but was warm and wholesome throughout.

Highly recommended, if you're a fan of this sort of thing. Some o [...]

    4. This review also appears on my blog, Read-at-Home Mom.Probably the best discovery I made last year is the fact that Newbery-winning author Kate Seredy lived for many years in Montgomery, NY, which is very near to where I grew up, and is the town in which I had my first library job. This fact alone was enough to make me want to read all of her books, and I got off to a good start with The White Stag, The Good Master, and The Singing Tree. But regardless of how beautifully written those other book [...]

    5. A great story of getting back to the old ways; another perspective to the slightly later The Egg and I. It suffers a little bit due to the overt patriotism of wartime, but that can't really be faulted too much - we ended up winning that war, after all. Plenty of great Seredy illustrations too.
