Strawberry Girl 60th Anniversary Edition

by Lois Lenski

HarperCollins | April 26, 2005 | Trade Paperback

Strawberry Girl 60th Anniversary Edition is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

The land was theirs, but so were its hardships

Strawberries -- big, ripe, and juicy. Ten-year-old Birdie Boyer can hardly wait to start picking them. But her family has just moved to the Florida backwoods, and they haven′t even begun their planting. ";Don′t count your biddies ′fore they′re hatched, gal young un!"; her father tells her.

Making the new farm prosper is not easy. There is heat to suffer through, and droughts, and cold snaps. And, perhaps most worrisome of all for the Boyers, there are rowdy neighbors, just itching to start a feud.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How the other half lived, junior The centerpiece of Lenski's remarkable experiment in 'regional' kidlit - short, sentiment-free tales of family life in the hardscrabble corners of America. Like its forgotten mates, 'Strawberry Girl' is a vividly plotted and carefully told bit of history for preteens. Read it by all means...and then get thee down to the library to hunt out the rest.

From Our Editors

Ten-year-old Birdie Boyer can hardly wait to start picking the strawberries. Her family has just moved to the Florida backwoods, and they haven't even begun their planting. Making the new farm prosper won't be easy--what with the heat, the droughts, the cold snaps and the neighbors.

Editorial Reviews

"A strong sense of place pervades this story of Birdie Boyer, a little Cracker girl who helps her Florida family to raise strawberries and to cope with the shiftless Slaters next door." -- "BE.""Full of the flavor of Florida lake country." -- "Basic Book Collection for Junior High Schools (ALA)."

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
