    "I wanted to make a color themed basked for my friend's going away party and red is her favorite color. While the book itself, Where the Red Fern Grows, isn't red, it had the color in the title. I also knew that this is one of her favorite books, so it was really a double win."

    "I first red "Where the Red Fern Grows" when I was in elementary school. I remember it vividly because I could not have a dog where we lived at the time and it made me want a dog more than anything. Old Dan and Little Ann were the most loyal companions to little Billy, and I knew if I had a dog it would be just as loyal. I am now reading this book to my son. The morals and wholesome nature give us a lot to talk about and it makes for a great bedtime read!"

    "This is a touchy subject for children I think when it comes the loss of a loved one but I love that it's about the dogs. I think this gives children a different perspective of losing someone."

    "Where the Red Fern Grows is the best novel I have ever read. When I was in high school, we had to read it and do a report on how it deals with friendship. I thought it was thought provoking since it was a human and his animal companions."

    "This book has been a classic since it came out. Not only is it a great story for middle school kids but anyone else who wants to read a moving story about dogs. "

    "This book definitely tugged at my heartstrings throughout. It's a bit choppy in the middle parts and has a couple of plots that go nowhere, but has a very definable third act that turns on the waterworks to a degree. I've always thought about it as the original Marley and Me!"

    "My daughters and I were talking about dogs and this book sprang to mind. I remember reading it in 6th or 7th grade and the impact it made on me. I read this to them even though they are capable of reading it on their own. I just wanted to experience it through theirs eyes with them. I cannot recommend this one enough."

I remember reading this book as a child and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great book for children."

    "Where the Red Fern Grows is one of the saddest books about dogs I have ever read. I cry every time I read it. It is a fantastic book though, so I keep going back to torture myself again and again."

    " Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks. Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters—now friends—and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair, and that the seeds of the future can come from the scars of the past."
