From the author's dedication to his mother and aunt, "who worked a farm like men but stayed as soft as quilts" to the end when they lose their farm and have to start over, this book is filled with charm and honest emotion.
After I read "A Day No Pigs Would Die" to my two children, they were clamoring for more about Robert and his family.
This book is not didactic about values, but as you read the struggles and misfortunes Robert and his family face at the onset of the Great Depression, you will find those down-home, bedrock values in every chapter. GREAT family reading.
I, as an adult, enjoyed it every bit as much as my two children did.
Another series of books with the same "flavor" is Little Britches by Ralph Moody.

This is an amazing story about the fast change from boyhood to manhood. A tale of sorrow and hard times followed by a warm ending. Anyone above the age of ten would like this book. It has scenes of blood and gore at times, but the story has a detailed plot and the ending is great.
You need to read "A Day No Pigs Would Die" to understand the background.

Peck makes us realize we are extremely lucky. Times were tough for Robert, Mama and Aunt Carrie. By understanding how they live their lives, we can't help but think about our own. They endure and maintain their strength and values in difficult times.

An excellent book that makes the reader truly want to learn what is coming next throughout the story.
