Review

...a flawless work. --Kirkus, starred review

Publishers Weekly 10 Best Children's Book 2007 Michelson (Too Young for Yiddish) and Caldecott Medalist Azarian (Snowflake Bentley) salute 12 generations of Tuttles from Dover, N.H., operators of the longest continuously running family farm in the country. Azarian s hand-crafted aesthetic enhances the story s warmth and humanity, while the sophisticated tints and bold outlines intensify the unalloyed beauty, reassuring rhythms and beguiling fecundity of rural farm life. --Publishers Weekly-starred review

...For the children who read this story, Grayson's pride in his heritage may reflect or encourage their own. Where does our family come from? How long have we lived in this place? What are our family treasures? What do we value? It may lead them to a sense of identity...This is a simple story, but not so simple to tell. How does a writer cover 400 years of history and 12 generations in 32 pages? I'm telling you, it takes a poet. Michelson is, in fact, an award-winning poet. ..who knows a thing or two about moving readers with words..."Tuttle's Red Barn" tells the history of a family, a place and a nation. It's a tour de force. That's French for wicked good book. ---Rebecca Rule -The Heart of new England-

The primary reason I purchased Tuttle's Red Barn is because I love the work of illustrator Mary Azarian. I collect books that feature her marvelous wood-cut illustrations. This book not only has Mary's illustrations; it also has an interesting text about the history of the oldest continuing farm in America. Children will glean a sense of American history from the story. I highly recommend Tuttle's Red Barn.

This interesting and informative book traces the development of today's oldest continuing family farm in the United States. The story begins with John Tuttle, who left England for the "New England" in 1632 and settled in Dover, New Hampshire. At the time, Dover consisted of about twenty cabins, the largest settlement in New Hampshire. John built his own cabin on the same land where the Tuttle farm stands today.

The next eleven generations of children and their children remained on this farm, cultivating the land, raising livestock, and selling farm products. Over the years, the small cabin was rebuilt into a larger farmhouse with a barn. Later, the family transformed the barn into a farm store that sold fresh fruits and vegetables, hand-spun wool, hand-dipped candles, home-made butter, and fresh maple syrup. Today this farm store is a 9,000 square foot building with an adjacent nursery that serves more than 1000 customers every day.

Tuttle's Red Barn takes the child reader quickly through history briefly touching on each generation of the John Tuttle family.It gives a glimpse of one family and the value they have placed on being family.

The colors are bright and appealing. A good read.

My mother's maiden name is Tuttle and she grew up on a farm in western Wisconsin. I was fun to see the generations through the years in the book. We are looking into information to find out if this family is a relative (many times removed) of ours!
My 13 year old nephew loved the book as well. Seems to be a kids book...but he was asking questions and looking up info on the internet. Great book!!

Bought for my oldest granddaughter! It is her hometown and as she went to school with Tuttle's. Thought she might like to have as they are no longer farming it.
