"This substantial picture book narrative is graced by vivid, beautifully rendered details."

The story of a girlhood lived in the glow of a woodstove from one of the country’s most distinguished and beloved authors, now back in printCooperative Children's Book Center's book of the week: "After her family gets electricity, The Range Eternal stove is replaced by a modern stove that doesn’t require tending, but clearly something is lost, too, in story that ends with the now-adult adult narrator finding the stove of her childhood in a thrift store and bringing it home to share the vision and history found in its flames, and the warmth of its heart with her family."
