Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Although this Newbery Award winning novel was published in 1935, it's protagonist, brave and lively 11 year old Caddie, and her many exciting, humorous and sometimes dangerous adventures might still have appeal to young readers of both sexes. The book is based on true stories of the author's grandmother, who lived on the Wisconsin frontier in the 1860s. Caddie tries to reject her mother's attempts to turn her into a young lady, preferring to join and sometimes even instigate the deeds and pranks of her brothers. She stands up to a school bully, and gets revenge on a snobbish, visiting cousin. Unfortunately, this otherwise fine novel tries to portray Native Americans in a manner that would seem sympathetic for the times, but by today's standards would still be considered condescending and rather stereotyped.
From the Publisher
"You take Little House on the Prairie; I'll take Caddie Woodlawn."

— Jim Trelease, author of The Read-Aloud Handbook

    This story takes place in 1864, on the Wisconsin frontier.
    The book follows the adventures of a certain girl, named Caddie Woodlawn. She is a tomboy, who likes to run around wildly with her two brothers, rather than staying inside and doing the tasks that are expected of her, like sewing, knitting, and cooking, with her mother and her older sister, Clara.

    Living in territory where Indians are nearby, excitement is always brewing. There are fish to catch, rafts to paddle, fields to plow, and school lessons to learn.

    Caddie's adventures were loosely based on the author's own grandmother. I think that makes the book interesting, to know that some of the events actually happened, and that the characters were based on real people.

    I recommend this book for either boys or girls. I think it was quite a fun read, and good for any age.

    Becoming a Family Tradition

    We read this book to our children in the late 1980's. We laughed out loud many times and loved some of the phrases so much they became favorites for some of our own situations.
    I wanted to read it to our granddaughter during this summer vacation, but couldn't find our old copy (one of the kids probably took it with them when they moved out). So I ordered a new copy.
    This spunky, loving, adventurous heroine is a refreshing role model and a delightful narrator.

    Great Heroine, Great Story

    This book was required reading for me in elementary school in Chicago in the 80's. I loved it then and when my third grade daughter brought home a historical novel assignment, I immediately thought of Caddie Woodlawn. My daughter is a tomboy and I knew she would relate to Caddie. Because I wanted to read it again myself and because I expected there would be some vocabulary and points that required some explanation or discussion, I chose to read it aloud to her. We are both enjoying this book thoroughly and highly recommemd it.

    more from this reviewer

    After 50 years . . .

    It is time for me to reread this one. I am 60 years old and remember reading this book when I was a young girl - and I rarely read books by choice in those days! I remember the adventurous Caddie, along with her brothers and the Indians, and I thought Caddie's father was the most wonderful man in the world. When my daughters were young, I insisted that they read it also, but I think it made less of an impact on them than it did on me. A great book and a great look look at American frontier life in the 1800s.

    Really Good

    I really liked Caddie Woodlawn. It really went deep into details and showed what a tomboy growing up during the pioneer lifestyle with the Indian tribes, and Indian John, and always playing with her brothers! I liked it.

    One of the best!

    This is one of my favorite classic stories! I looooooooove Caddie Woodlawn!!!!!!!! This is even better than the movie they have out there. It's about a young girl growing up in the 1800's, and she is as tomboy as tomboy can get! She loves adventure and gets herself into all of these messes... it's really crazy! Caddie Woodlawn was actually a real person, which I thought was really interesting. I wonder how much of it actually happened and how much of it the author changed for the purpose of her story. I liked the part of the story when Caddie's snobby and stuck-up cousin Anabelle came to visit. I also liked Katie Hyman, and I'm mad that the movie gave her a much smaller part. She even died in the movie, and that doesn't even happen in the book. If you have watched the movie but not the book, I recommend reading the actual book... it's a lot of fun!
