Barn is a great little book about a barn that was built in the times of the pilgrims. You go through all of the time periods that the barn goes through: the revolution, the depression, the 60s, etc. The barn tells you all of the stories that she/he hears and what she goes through during each period. I great book for people of all ages.As a student reading this book, I thought that it was great. You get to go back in time and see what it was like to be out in the country during different time periods. My favorite part of the book was seeing how different families used the barn for something different. And in the end the barn returns to the days of when she was first built.As a teacher this book would be great book to use to show how things are used in different time periods. The book also has some very good illustrations. These might appeal to some of my younger students. I could also use this book for a read aloud.
