...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 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.
