    Strawberry Girl was the first novel I read by children s book author and illustrator Lois Lenski October 14, 1893 September 11, 1974 I read the book in the fifth grade in secret, because with its pink cover, not to mention title, was girly At the time, I was in the process of reading books that had the Newbery Award, regardless of content There were some duds in that bunch For instance, I could not get into Dr Doolittle by Hugh Lofting, due to the archaic language and the fact that ther Strawberry...

    I really enjoyed this book Not only are the characters well drawn, and the illustrations quaint, but I learned a piece of Florida s history something I knew nothing about prior to reading Strawberry Girl.

    This book almost rated four stars, but the highly improbably ending left a sour note in my mouth I did not believe for a moment that a single kindness even a long and sustained kindness could so totally change the character of Mr Slater I could sort of see him being nice to the Boyers from now on, but his entire personality has changed When he s talking about the death of his livlihood and entire way of life, it says that previously he d have been in a rage, but now he was gentle as milk This book almost rated four stars, but the highly improbably ending left a sour note in my mouth I did not believe for a moment that a single kindness even a long and sustained kindness could so totally change the character of Mr Slater I could sort of see hi...

    This was a surprising read for me I didn t know that Lois Lenski has an American Regional Series set in various parts of the US, highlighting childhood in such parts Strawberry Girl is set in the pioneer days of Florida and seen through the eyes of young Birdie Boyer whose family settles in the backwoods In a way, this book shows signs of age but it is so well told that I believe it would make a great read aloud as long as the reader is committed to reading the dialogue in the backwoods dia This was a surprising read for me I didn t know that Lois Lenski has an American Regional Series set in various parts of the US, highlighting child...
