    A taste of southern living in the 1900's through historical fiction.

    'Strawberry Girl' by Lois Lenski is an rare insight into a child's life in the 1900's. The books main character, Birdie Boyer, and her family move from Marion County, Florida to the Roddenberry house in the backwoods of Florida. The family is greeted by the Slater's, who soon enough become their enemies and best friends. The families feud throughout the book. There are near death experience, burning woods, pig ear clipping, animal poisoning, and more. The feuding doesn't stop until kindess from one family saves the lives of the others, changing one person forever. Giving the theme of the book to be honor your neighbor because you never know when you might need them. This book was different than any book that I have read lately. I enjoyed how the author incorporated the southern language into the book, giving a more realistic touch. For instance when Birdie talks with her father after teaching Shoestring Slater a lesson for making fun of her horse her father says,'They'll be back directly don't pay no mind....Tired out with all the plowin'? Little gal like you, no bigger'n a weesny wren, plowin' a hull bug field like this.' Also the I like out the author adds different aspects of southern life. For example, the author in vivid detail describes how sugar cane is made and then how the candy is made from the cane. The author doesn't sugar coat the book most, she depicts every aspect of what life was like, from their clothing, school, farm work, and even some drunken brawls. This book is fun and exciting but is definitly not for all ages. I would recommend this book for 5th grade and above. The author Lois Lenski won he Newbery Award for 'Strawberry Girl' in 1946. She has written and illustrated many other books, but this is the most recognized. She was born in Springfield, Ohio in 1893. She graduate from Ohio State University in 1915 where she studied art. She mainly writes regional stories with a southern twang. She passed away in 1974. She was trully an amazing writer, who wrote about how life really was.

    Strawberry Girl

    It has 19 and a half pages. It may seem long but it is not. It starts out when the Slaters are sitting on the porch. Mr. Slater just found out some new people from Caroliny moved in to the ole Roddenberry house. They are the Boyers. They start trouble right away. They Boyers plan to grow strawberries but the Slaters say the strawberries will die. The Slaters animals wreck everything including the strawberries. Animals start to die and the Slaters start a fire. The end is real good, so you should read it and find out what happens.
