Book Review/Giveaway: Return to Fern Valley. Ends Jan 15th


About the Book: The Fern Valley Kids are back in twelve new and exciting adventures. Join Mildred and Roberta Cornstalk as they discover a clue hidden inside a library book. Peek into the window of a secret cottage with the lovely Betsy Woolrich. Find out what Jason Curlytail builds from a box, what Alice Redfeather does when she gets locked out of the house, or how Nathan Gruff copes with the news of a new baby.
My Review: Return to Fern Valley is a collection of short stories relating to the animals that live in Fern Valley. You have Roberta and Mildred Cornstalk who are curious chicken by nature and love to read, Betsy Woolrich a cheerful little sheep, Jason Curlytail who comes from a large family of diverse pigs, and many more. This is a book children will enjoy reading. Follow these wonderful animals as some of them discover hidden clue inside a library book and can’t wait to solve it. While Betsy is pleased that her new home would still be near all of her friends. And many more stories.

I love the exciting details and imagination of each story. This is a book that teaches valuable lesson. It is full of stories that children can relate too. I highly recommend this book for children starting to read chapter books.

  1. This sounds like a book my 8 year old son would enjoy reading because he likes stories with clues in them that he has to solve. I like that it teaches a valuable lesson.

  5. I believe that short stories are imperative in the growth of a child’s understanding of books in general. Short stories can provide insight where long stories can not reach out at the same level for younger children. Your review was excellent and I really enjoyed knowing that valuable lessons can be gained via this book. We look forward to reading even if our family does not win! Happy Holidays and a beautiful New Year!

  10. This year I started reading and reviewing children’s books for my blog. I feel like I’m now looking at all stories with young eyes and enjoying even the horror genre in a new way because of it.
    I recently read an adorable picture book, Billy & Monster’s Golden Christmas and a chapter book, Dewi & the Seeds of Doom. And I just started the second book in a series somewhat similar to this. It all takes me back to The Wind in the Willows and the possibilities that might lie in the fields behind my house.

    Thanks so much for sharing this book and have a Happy New year!

  11. I loved reading as a child and so does my 4 year old granddaughter. I think her mom and dad would love reading these stories to her, especially because they are about animals.

  12. The first one was wonderful; I gave it to two neighbor girls who would LOVE to read the sequel! But I get it FIRST!
