Least of All

Our rating: ****

Raven Hannah is the youngest child in her family. She wants to help with the work on her family’s farm, but everyone always tells her that she is too little. Finally, Raven Hannah is given the job of churning butter. While performing this long task, Raven Hannah learns to do something that no one else in her family can do.

This is one of my favorite picture books. The ending is quite touching, especially because Raven Hannah’s desire to be strong enough to help with the farm work is so clear in the beginning of the story. Sadly, Least of All is out of print.

  1. She learns to read, doesn’t she? If I’m thinking of the right book, we have it. I really like it as well. Good stuff.
