One of the best books I've ever read while I'm in my fourth grade. I like how Patricia MacLachlan uses her title as the "hook" that hooks readers into the story.

This is one of my favourite children's books. It is part 1 of 5. Patricial MacLachlan writes with such tenderness but tells real life stories.

What a heartwarming story! I can certainly see why it won the Newberry Medal. For any child who loved Little house on the praries--this series would also be a good one for slightly younger children whose reading level is not quite at the Little house level.
