Publisher's Summary

It is a good thing that mothers understand what no one else seems to when you are the youngest child in the family, and are finally four years old. Bonnie is more than ready to join her older sisters and brother in the many adventures she sees come their way, whether it be sliding along the ice, searching for arrowheads, or going on that journey of all journeys-across the swinging bridge to school. Winter or summer, something is always happening in the Fairchild house, tucked amidst the pine trees of the Kentucky hills 100 years ago or more. And, four years old or not, Bonnie usually manages to be in the middle of the action!

cute and sweet

My 7 year old daughter enjoyed this book very much. It is a sweet and nice story. Good for younger children but not as exciting or adventurous as the Box Car Children or Pippi Long Stocking. But that said my daughter wants to hear all the follow up stories by the author.

Narrator was hard to listen to...

....but the story was fantastic. She loaded that accent a mite too strong. It made the listening hard at times. But the story was fun.

Charming

My young boys and I enjoyed this sweet story. Once I acclimated to the narrator, I really appreciate her tender storytelling. The author understood the mind of a child and of a parent. This touched my heart.

Such a sweet story!

Both my son and daughter have enjoyed listening to this story and the other 3 in the series. The narrator is great and fits the tone of the story and characters superbly. The stories are very sweet and are full of wonderful examples of good and moral character. I am so happy that my children have found joy in such good and uplifting stories.
