“It‘s a strange thing but somehow we expect more of girls than boys.”
I would use this book as an opportunity to talk about the civil war and incorporate a history lesson after!
Well, I wasn‘t sure this book would stand up to the test of time, but I guess I had good taste as a kid. 😆 I love that Caddie knows how to plow, hunt, and fish, and that now her brothers are learning to quilt and cook and bake along with her. 💖 I also love that Caddie is friends with Native Americans and that her dad came from Britain, that the characters grow from their experiences, and ... this is trying to turn into a review. Let me shush. 😉
First published in 1935, Caddie was a groundbreaker in her own right: loved outdoor play rather than domestic chores, made friends with the Indians, and generally considered "unladylike" ??

There are so many, many beautiful children's books that I love, and I could never choose a favorite. But Caddie Woodlawn was a big one for me when I was a little loner tomboy, looking for myself in books. #riotgrams #favoritechildrensbook
