Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Nora, her parents, and her little brother, Milo, move from Russia to a farm on the American prairie, but she misses her old home and longs for a friend. Even when the family adopts a stray dog, the one he takes a shine to is Milo. After her father gives her 10 little chicks to care for, the growing birds become her responsibility and, ultimately, just the icebreaker that shy Nora needs to befriend Susannah, who lives on a nearby farm. Set in the past, the quiet story portrays Nora’s emotions with finesse. Brown’s beguiling illustrations—sensitive drawings with watercolor washes—bring the characters and the rural setting to life in evocative scenes, with the focus sometimes on the landscape, sometimes on the characters. Written mainly in short words and sentences, this sometimes amusing, sometimes tender picture book is a good choice for reading aloud while also being accessible to many independent readers. Preschool-Grade 2. --Phelan, Carolyn

Review

Like her novels, MacLachlan’s latest picture book is a heartwarming—but never saccharine—tale with an old-fashioned feel.
—Kirkus

This is a lovely, affecting package.
—Publishers Weekly

Brown’s beguiling illustrations—sensitive drawings with watercolor washes—bring the characters and the rural setting to life in evocative scenes, with the focus sometimes on the landscape, sometimes on the characters. Written mainly in short words and sentences, this sometimes amusing, sometimes tender picture book is a good choice for reading aloud while also being accessible to many independent readers.
—Booklist

This longer picture book fills a need for early elementary historical fiction.
—School Library Journal

The illustrations are done in watercolor and enhance the story by providing more details about the setting, the passage of time, and the period.
—Library Media Connection

Any kid who has experienced loneliness will surely relate to Nora’s feelings of heartache, and the simple, understated text keeps the action poignant without tipping over into sentimental melodrama.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

This beautiful book will charm readers young and old.
—San Francisco Book Review
