"There’s a marvelous mix of peppy text and bone-deep comfort at work within the language of this story.... Visual treasures abound in the corners of the art, and children may enjoy figuring out which characters from the beginning of the book... change and grow by the story’s end. Seasons come and seasons go, but cozy concepts like barns on farms will never ever die." — Kirkus Reviews
