    1. The Amish community comes together to replace a neighbor's barn. The artwork by Bernie Fuchs is simply stunning.My only question is if they can raise an entire barn in one day, why did it take two and a half weeks for some Amish workmen to put a new roof on my neighbor's house?


    2. This is a interesting picture book that teaches children about Amish life. On one Amish farm, a stroke of lightning hits the barn, and it burns to the ground. The next day, the whole Amish community gets together to raise (build) a new barn. The are so orderly and prepared that it makes on wonder, how often does a barn burn down? It is an educational book for kids that shows a community coming together to help each other.


    3. This is a great story carried along by wonderful illustration, telling about a young boy growing up and the value of a barn and a community to the Amish farmer. Fuchs' oil paintings shine as they capture emotion, light, and bodies straining and at rest.


    4. So much excitement over a barn. Wow. This must be why people a wanting to live the country life. I wish there were more animals in the pictures or more detail about the family relationships. I still can't believe the boy get so excited about a working on a farm with hand tools.


    5. Lovely luminous story-filled paintings bring depth to the simple telling of people caring for one another in practical ways.



    6. What happens when an Amish owned barn is struck by lightning and burns down. Everyone comes out, and in 1 day raises a new barn. Barn raising still goes on today in the Amish community.
