By the big red barn

In the great green field,

There was a pink pig

Who was learning to squeal

There were horses and sheep and goats and geese - and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn.

In Joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown's simple, rythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

"The skeins of faith and love that connect a family are all knit together in this powerful, accessible, and deeply affecting story. " --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

A New York Times bestseller

A bond of love unites a family throughout generations in this companion to the beloved and bestselling classic The Keeping Quilt.

As a young Russian Jewish girl in the early 1900s, Anna and her family lived in fear of the Czar's soldiers. The family lived a hard life and had few possessions--their treasure was a beautiful china tea set. A wedding gift to Anna's parents, the tea set came with a wish that "Anyone who drinks from this will have blessings from God. They will never know a day of hunger. Their lives will always have flavor. They will know love and joy and they will never be poor."

When Anna's family leaves Russia for America, they bring the tea set and its blessings. A source of heritage and security, the tea set helps Anna's family make friends and find better lives in America. A cup from the tea set--The Blessing Cup--became an anchor of family history, and it remains a symbol of lasting love more than a century later.

This tender tribute to the importance of loving lineage is a prequel and companion to the perennial bestseller The Keeping Quilt and is told and illustrated with authenticity and tremendous heart.
