Praise for The SheepOver:
"The Churchmans capture something that feels like a modern-day fairy tale
"[A] feel-good story.
"—The New York Times
"I'd never met John, or heard of his farm, but when he brought in this book for us to consider selling, it was hard not to jump over the counter and pump his hand in congratulations.... This is a book that sells itself the minute you put it into a customer's hands
."—Elizabeth Bluemle, Publishers Weekly Shelftalker blogPraise for Brave Little Finn:
"John Churchman's photo-collages bring the seasons to life
through textured layers of frost, raindrops, and leaves. Children who share Finn's timid tendencies should be encouraged by the strides he makes during his first year.
