The Old Red Barn is a farm story for kids.
A children’s book about the changing landscape seen through the eyes of an old red barn. The National Barn Alliance loved it, saying: “There is no better book for kids to learn about the life of a barn in America.”
Our books are American-Made, and for every book sold, one tree is planted with the National Forest Foundation.
What Our Readers Are Saying
Book is amazing! The message gives the reader pause, while also offering hope. Perfect story for all ages.
All 3 of my kids loved The Old Red Barn, and each has asked me to read it again. It’s a jump-starter for questions, too. Charlie, who is visually oriented, would ask things like: Why are there only 2 barns left? Where did the other barns go? It was the perfect gateway for me to describe the history.”Kristin from Texas
Such a sweet story, and I love that you gave the barn human qualities. A beautiful “read-aloud” book, too, and could also be read independently for 3rd graders. The rhyming is equally excellent and helps children identify the ending sounds of words. Well done!Ms. Elder
