Item description for Little Farm Down the Lane by Bonnie Bedi Siegrist...
Overview In this heartwarming story, Bonnie, a young child, is thrilled to be moving to a farm. Filled with excitement and wonder, she explores her new surroundings. She soon realizes that, although a farm can be great fun, it also involves some danger and a lot of hard work. More than anything, she wants to become "Daddy's little farm girl," but finds she has much to learn. With Mommy and Daddy's help, a few mishaps, and some humorous experiences, she accomplishes her goal. In the process, she begins to learn about God, including some timely lessons on patience. Little Farm Down the Lane shows, from a little girl's perspective, what growing up on a farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was like in the late 1940s to the early 1950s, while presenting Christian values to today's generation of children in an entertaining and uplifting format. This is the first book in a projected series of eight. As the story continues to unfold in future books, Bonnie's parents begin attending a local church and God becomes an integral part of their lives. Bonnie and her family grow in their knowledge of God through good times and bad times.

Teacher/Librarian Recommendation Mar 21, 2006
Having been an elementary teacher and librarian, I highly recommend the Little Farm Down the Lane series. It is encouraging to find books, such as these, that provide wholesome and true-life experiences. Living on a farm provides a unique perspective, especially to children who have no concept of country living. For example, in Book I, Bonnie tries to milk a cow and helps to solve the mystery of what is eating the grain in the chicken bins. Making a scarecrow to keep the birds away and a spoiled Labor Day picnic are highlights of Book II. Also, snails make a delicious treat from leftover pie dough. In Book III, Bonnie learns about dehorning steers, helps to plant tobacco, and deals with fear after a fire at her farmhouse.
Loved the series! Mar 18, 2006
We have all three of the books that are out so far. I loved the stories and couldn't put them down. Thank you for these great books!
WONDERFUL, WHIMSICAL, GREAT READING ! Mar 17, 2006
Having known Bonnie and her family for over 30 years, these books have special meaning to me and my family. Bonnie really knows how to bring out the values, principles, fun and excitement of living and growing up on a farm. As a grandmother I thoroughly enjoyed reading all three books and made sure my grandchildren have a copy too. Can't wait to read her future books ! !
Farm Fabulicious! Mar 14, 2006
Turn the first page and the descriptions take you to the farm as if you are really there. This is a great book for kids who've never been outside the city to read. Country life can be hard but it is also fun at the same time. My favorite part was when she was sliding around on her dress at the store...you've got to read it now to learn what happens next!
Our kids beg for one more chapter Mar 14, 2006
We have all three books. We are on our 2nd one now and even though it is within my childrens' reading ability have decided to read together at night. My children love it so much that they continue to beg for "one more chapter, Please!!!!!!". I think deep down every child would love to live on a farm and it allows the kids to experience that. It has many wonderful wholesome lessons within that have opened up many great discussions between us and our children. I really look forward to reading the 3rd and hope many more are on the way.
