What the community says about Where the Red Fern Grows
- "Such a great story about love, but not only love but it's also about bravery and faith. The author did a wonderful job painting the picture with the words he implemented and you can just picture yourself inside the story line. Wow one of the best i have read to date. "
- "I remember reading this in middle school and I thought I'd check it out again. It's a classic coming-of-age story about a boy and his dogs that would be great for any young adult to read. It's so emotional and the artistic descriptions are so vivid, it really transports you to a different time and place."

- "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!"

in What are the saddest novels"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."
- "Where the Red Fern Grows is an all-time classic book. It remains popular even to this day. I don't know how much I'd regard it as a Christian-specific book, but it is perfect for fourth graders. I remember reading this book as a child and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great book for children."

in What are the best books with dogs
- " 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."
