I would use this book as an opportunity to talk about the civil war and incorporate a history lesson after!

Mehso-so

Historical Fiction. The authors sense of fun throughout the book allows children to connect to the story! The book is very detailed, creating a good image of life during the civil war and what that may have been like for Caddie growing up.

The place and weather descriptions in this book made me reaaaallly want to run around outside and play somewhere outside the city.

jchawkins I would run around too if it wasn't the time of year when the effort of breathing is enough to drip with sweat 😅😂 6mo
Sunraven @jchawkins: Right? That‘s probably part of why it made me feel that way — talking about nice cool Wisconsin springtimes and frozen winters... 6mo
jchawkins 😆I LIVE IN WISCONSIN. 6mo

Sunraven @jchawkins: 😆 I spent a couple of months in Sheboygan one winter just to see snow, but yeah, I hear it gets pretty hot in the summer ... Came back to Florida for that bit. 😉 6mo
jchawkins @Sunraven Ha, yeah, I sometimes joke that I should live in Alaska because I'm most comfortable when it's 35 and snowing, and so much of the summers around here are above 80 degrees, and I go full-blown Wicked Witch of the West mode and just melt all over the place. I could never do Florida! 6mo
Sunraven @jchawkins: If you need visitors in Alaska I‘d be happy to bring books. 😁 I like both beach weather and snowy weather, and probably require both for true life satisfaction. 🏝☃️

Also, fun Florida facts: It‘s always fuhreeeezing indoors in the summer (air conditioner freezing is not like snowy freezing ... much less charming), so in a way it‘s hot and cold here at the same time. 😆

jchawkins @Sunraven Ugh I hear you! I don't have AC at my place but my work has AC. So I'm at home wearing as few clothes as possible, sweating profusely, and then have to bundle up in pants/hoodie for the commute to work so I don't go numb. 😆 6mo
Sunraven Sounds about right, so I might have to disagree with your earlier statement — you totally already have the skills to survive Florida, at least as far as the heat goes. 😆 6mo

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. 😉

TheAromaofBooks I really love Carol Ryrie Brink. Have you ever read Two Are Better Than One? It's sooo adorable. 6mo
Sunraven @TheAromaofBooks: I have not, but I‘ll look for it! It sounds right up my alley (and kind of like something I did with a friend around that age). Thanks for the recommendation! 😁👍✨ 6mo
TheAromaofBooks I hope you are able to find it! I also always forget that I can actually tag books in comments haha 6mo

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

ReadingSusan Ahhh I loved this book! 3y
Andrea313 @ReadingSusan I can't even estimate how many times I read it! Did you ever read the sequel, Magical Melons? I didn't enjoy it as much, bit still worth a read. 3y
ReadingSusan @Andrea313 yes I liked that one too! 3y

I loved this one when I was younger! Caddie is what you'd get if you mixed Anne Shirley and Laura Ingalls Wilder together #childprotagonist #photoadaynov16

#FunFridayPhoto Caddie Woodlawn was a middle grade book I loved. She was like a smarter, tougher version of Little House on the Prairie.
