In a celebration of a kid-favorite farm feature, a steadfast old barn proves her strength to stand the test of time. From the day they raise her roof and join her beams and boards together, everyone is sure Bess will be a strong barn worth celebrating. She proves them right by welcoming and protecting cows and pigs and horses and more inside her sturdy walls. When she starts to sag and wear down, a shinier barn is quickly built.
