" Ree moves to the country and starts to settle in as a country girl. " said.

" A cute book about moving from the city to the country and what that meant for little Ree " said.

" A picture book by Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman. The story follows a city girl's transformation to country living. The narrative is just okay. " said.

" The drawings were cute, but the narration style was a little clumsy. " said.

" I wanted to love this book because I thoroughly enjoy everything about Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, but I just couldn't find the love :( I'm not even exactly sure what turned me off, but this particular book just didn't work for me. The illustrations were gorgeous so that's something! " said.

" Cute story about a family (2 parents, brother, and Ree) moving from the city to the country to live with Ree's grandparents. The focus is on how different things are in the country -- riding horses, the clothes people wear, and what time people get up.The girl is named Ree, but the author didn't move to the country until she was grown. This is her idea of what it would have been like to move as a child. " said.

"I think Ree Drummond did a good job capturing what I imagine she actually was like as a child. This charmingly illustrated picture book tells the story of Little Ree's first days on her grandparents' farm. Little Ree quickly discovers farm life involves early morning hours, loads of hard work, and a hearty appetite. Spunky and upbeat, Ree is likely to delight young girls, particularly those interested in animals, farms, or cooking. Those who like a little more "meat" to their stories may find it a bit cloying (think Pollyanna.) As a bonus a pancake recipe is included." said.

"Review originally published on my blog, Nine Pages .

In what I assume is an autobiographical story, Little Ree moves with her family from the city to her grandparents’ farm. She’s really excited, but country life isn’t what she is expecting. She has to get up early. Her bedroom is plain. The night is dark, and there are scary sounds outside. She is given a horse, but the horse doesn’t do what she wants. The illustrations are precious, and the story is told with a very realistic child’s voice. The whole of her story is told from her monologue addressed both to the audience and to the characters without any dialogue tags or narration. Little Ree is talkative enough that the story remains even apart from the illustrations. Little Ree reminds me a bit ofFancy Nancy and Eloise with her precociousness and clothes horse-ish-ness.
" said.
