WINNER OF THE 2010 CALEB CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD.

Ten-year-old Milly had always dreamed of living in the country and owning all sorts of animals. So when her parents buy a piece of land and move their six children into a ninety-year-old barn, Milly can't believe her luck. But she never imagined that living the simple life would include mucking out a filthy water tank, gathering endless supplies of firewood, clearing the land, and rescuing animals in a 'hundred year' storm.

Nor did she expect to hear deep groanings in the night...

This book is a collection of stories of the Boom family's weird and wonderful experiences and adventures living in the barn. They are told in Rosie's unique style and are suitable for primary age readers, or to be read to children by parents.

Rosie Boom

Rosie lives with her husband, Chris, and their six children, Josiah, Kate, Eliza, Emily, Samuel and Jacob in a barn in Whangarei, New Zealand (while they build a new family home). Rosie spent three years as a young child in Papua New Guinea, where her parents were missionaries. After graduating from her nursing training, she spent a year in Borneo as a missionary. It was here that Chris came to visit her and declare his love - the rest is history!

Rosie and Chris are singer/songwriters, and have had the joy of encouraging and challenging Christians in many different countries. They have released a number of CDs which are available on their web site. Rosie has also published a children's book, The Happy Prince. Rosie is a sought after speaker at women's conferences, missions and home-schooling conventions, and churches, where she loves to speak about her passions - missions, family, and Jesus.

Idyllic Childhood
4 stars By Julie, Mar 17 2014
I have just read this book. I recommend it as a wholesome, adventurous book that harks back to the days when children had freedom to roam and take a risk - away from the screen. It would be a great book for homeschoolers. Rosie writes with warmth and care. I look forward with anticipation to the second book in the series.

A brilliant adventure to read aloud. Reading about the struggles and triumphs of the Boom family, has given our family new perspective and a better attitude. My kids now want to live like the family in the book! 
Loved by both me and the kids ;)
