About the Book

In 1919, this barn was built by townspeople, family, and friends.

It has stood for a hundred years and will stand for a hundred more.

The barn is a symbol of peace
and stability
and caring
and community.

In this joyful celebration of a hundred-year barn, Newbery Medal–winning author Patricia MacLachlan and award-winning artist Kenard Pak spin a tender and timeless story about the simple moments that make up a lifetime.
