    1. “Marc Kuhn employs the use of allegory in a series of short stories all taking place on a farm. From messages great and small, his use of simple passages speaks volumes to readers of all ages. Children will love the stories and will most definitely benefit from the deeper meanings tucked neatly within each story. About a Farm is a book that kids will want to read again and again, and adults will enjoy knowing that the messages within will be providing children with a solid foundation for criti [...]


    2. Really enjoyable parables about farm animals, suitable for four to seven year olds. We read one chapter per night, perfect length for a bedtime story. There's a moral in each story about how we should treat other people, and what's important in life. Nice to have thought-provoking stories for kids, for a change. The last chapter, involving the death of a hen called Helen, is better read in daytime.
