Format: Perfect Paperback
Fern Valley is a collection of stories that all kids can relate to. Children will enjoy fun stories about clubs being formed, the excitement of being part of a school play, the thrill of camping outdoors and the pleasure of building an indoor fort. There are stories with life lessons that children may have to face someday. Kids will relate to experiences such as these: finding something that doesn't belong to them and wanting to keep it; having to work for something you want, new additions to the family, and telling the truth is always the best. This would be an entertaining book for reading out loud with the family and could open up some good moral discussions. I think this book would be a wonderful addition to any child's collection.

What a darling story. I wasn't sure what my son would think when the first story opened with a tea party...but, soon after the boy stories started. Perfect for an eight year old boy who loves fishing and generally getting into trouble without ever meaning to. Stewart did a wonderful job of mixing it up!

Fern Valley by Aileen Stewart is a great bundle of heart warming stories for children. Each story is filled with exciting details and imagination. She takes everyday situations and uses them as a tool for teaching children, from telling the truth, to helping out at home.

Follow the adventures of delightful young farm animals that are just like you. Fern Valley is home to a group of wonderful animals who have fun and face some of the same problems children everywhere do. Roberta and Mildred Cornstalk are creative chickens dealing with the loss of their beloved granny, and they're looking for something to do to cheer them up. Want to know what adventures they find? Want to know what happens to Roberta and Mildred's brother, Edward, when he goes fishing, what birthday surprise is in store for Betsy Woolrich, or what lesson Kimmy Curlytail learns when she keeps something that isn't hers? Then follow this endearing cast of characters as they enjoy their time together and learn important lessons. A perfect addition for any child's personal library and a joy for families to share, Fern Valley is a collection to be treasured for many years to come.

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.

"Fern Valley" by Author Aileen Stewart is a wonderful children's book chock full of short stories. Each of these stories has a message or moral woven into the story. Therefore, this book is a great teaching tool for children in the earlier grades.

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.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Fern Valley is a quaint little town with lots of possibilities for its young inhabitants. This collection of short stories by Aileen Stewart tells of the goings on of the animal children in this little community. Kimmy Curlytail the pig, Betsy Woolridge the sheep, and all their friends have stories to tell and adventures to experience here in Fern Valley.

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.

There's something comforting about curling up with a children's books and remembering all the stories read to you as a child.

Flashback to child hood story time.

The Bernstein Bears

Beatrix Potter's stories

The Big Burgess book of Nature Stories

I happen to own a copy of the Burgess book, it's a beautiful (and very old) hard cover with gold leaves on it.

If those were any of your favourites as a child, I'd recommend getting yourself a copy of Fern Valley. I'd recommend the paperback in this case as the formatting looks great, and it's not that much more than the kindle version. Whether you are reading it to children, or just want to remember the past, and curl up with a quick evening read, you'll definitely enjoy the book.

A while ago, I read part of Fern Valley to some kids at the market for story time. I know at least one person who is itching to know what they, and what I thought.

We only had an hour to read at the market, so I chose the first story in the book, "The Club". I'll concentrate a little more on this book since I can tell you the kids' opinions as well as my own, but it's pretty indicative of the rest of the book's style. Each story is unique, and all the characters are fun to read about and follow around the pages of the book, and the imaginary world I imagine each child creates after hearing or reading the book.

I'm taking a break for `supper' (it's 8:30pm here, and it's been a long day), but I'll be back later this evening to tell you more about the book, and The Club in general.

The kids liked the story a lot. It led to those wonderful questions that children as like "Who is your favourite? Is it Betsy? Mine's Betsy.
