This book encompasses the dream of living in the country. Prudy comes to Meadows Farm for a two-week visit and transforms from a city girl into a country girl with the help of her cousins. It’s complete with all the animals, a tree house, and the county fair.
This really was a sweet story of overcoming fears, teamwork, and sweet relationships just to name a few. I loved to see Prudy learn from her family and experience that she can do hard things and forgive and love. Had me smiling in the end!
What a fun book! My kids and I loved reading about how Prudy became one of the family at Granny’s farm. The illustrations are so cute, and the descriptive writing really brings this story to life.
There was a lot to enjoy in this story. I loved the descriptions of country life and the adventures of Prudy and her cousins. Prudy, an only child, matures a lot through those adventures, and learns about communication and friendship from her cousins. My 10 yo daughter also really liked reading it!
This made my 11 year old daughter crave a life on a farm more than ever! I was skeptical at first but the book really took off and turned out well. It includes family values, growing up and change in a positive way.
When Prudy stays at Granny’s farm without her parents for the first time, she feels nervous and out of place. Before long, however, Prudy trades her pretty dresses for a pair of blue jeans and learns to climb, ride a pony, and walk the old log across the creek.
Together with her cousins, Prudy experiences adventures previously unknown to her while learning lessons about herself and the world around her.
