More About the Author
The fact that I chose to write about farm animals is directly related to the fact that my childhood friend lived on a farm. It was a magical place to visit and the place where I became a big fan of chickens and gathering eggs. The characters and events in Fern Valley are loosely based on people I knew and events my brother and I experienced growing up.
I also have many loves besides writing. I love to travel, I love to bird-watch, and I love to bake. I love to craft, play board games, attend auctions, take photographs, do book reviews, flower garden, and volunteer at the library.

Kelly Hagen ~ author of Jake and Jesus
Fern Valley is a collection of short stories; all the stories are about the animals that live in Fern Valley. I love the exciting details and imagination of each story.
This is a book that teaches valuable lesson. It is full of stories that children can relate too. I highly recommend this book for children starting to read chapter books.

The characters are cute and likeable. The stories are well thought out and teach moral and relationship lessons to the readers. The writing would be able to be read by most 8-10 year olds, but even younger children would enjoy having the colorful characters and exciting stories read to them. Each short story is easily used for right before bedtime.
I enjoyed my time spent in Fern Valley and encourage everyone to stop in for a cup of tea at the tea club, build a fort on a rainy day, or try to figure out how to handle an accidental mistake. I especially enjoyed the story of the Locket, as so many children can relate to wanting something that someone else has.
~Kristi Burchfiel, Author of Without Regrets and The Daily Devotional Series
The characters in these stories are a variety of farm animals which will bring the imaginations of the children reading them to life. Aileen Stewart has a great imagination herself, as she masterfully creates these short stories to not only share her gift, but to share her own morals and values as well in such a creative and effective way.
Two of my favorite ones in this collection are The Locket and The Sitter. This little gem of a book would be a welcomed addition to any school or library. It is such a delightful book, not only to be read by young children, but a book to be read to them by parents and teacher in order to further discuss the moral messages found in it.
I'm a middle school teacher and always try to see how I can incorporate new things in my classroom. At first I thought these stories would be a little on the "young" side for my students, but as soon as I finished the first one I had teaching ideas popping in my head!
I like that there are separate short stories because I can use these as read-alouds to my students. Discussions on theme will follow and with each unique lesson a unique writing prompt.
Aileen did a great job, not just writing a book for children to enjoy but a book of timeless lessons both parents and teachers will want for themselves.
