Slater had come over to call as soon as the boys drove off with the cows ture was not good. The cattle could not get enough to eat. So Boyer and Slater forgot their differences and decided to have the boys drive their cows twenty-five miles to Lake Weller, where winter grass was better.

Strawberry Girl book. Strawberry Girl was the first novel I read by children’s book author and illustrator Lois Lenski (October 14, 1893 – September 11, 1974). I read the book in the fifth grade in secret, because with its pink cover, not to mention title, was girly. At the time, I was in the process of reading books that had the Newbery Award, regardless of content. There were some duds in that bunch.

Strawberry Girl - Lois Lenski. written and illustrated by LOIS LENSKI. THE BIG EVENT OF THE 1940s was the award of the Newbery Medal to Strawberry Girl in 1946. No one was more astonished than I to receive it. Had it been given to my book Indian Captive, the Story of Mary Jemison, which I considered my major and most scholarly work, I would not have been surprised.

Birdie Boyer was a Florida Cracker. She belonged to a large "strawberry family," who lived on a flatwoods farm in the lake section of the state. They raised strawberries for a living.

Through all the hazards of the uncertain crop -- battling against dry weather and grass fires, the roving hogs and cattle of their neighbors -- Birdie dreamed of an education that would include playing the organ. In the end she won not only the title of "strawberry girl," but book learning as well.

This is a story full of enterprise and fun and tire excitement of real life in this interesting part of America.

Lois Lenski has used again her gift for catching the flavor and drama of life in a remote corner of America. It is the second of a series of regional stories through which she promises to introduce other fascinating and little-known backgrounds to boys and girls. This story will take a place beside her popular Louisiana story Bayou Suzette in the affection of readers.

The eighty-four illustrations are distinguished for their action and fascinating detail. They add greatly to this true picture of Florida life at a time when old Florida ways were changing to new.

This book is the second book in a Regional series of books written by Lois Lenski in 1945. It was the intention to capture the life of families and girls in their day to day life in the early 20th Century. This specific book follows a family as they make a life for themselves in Central Florida. What I liked:

1. The Story: There's something about a simple story and the description of the simple lives of children. Lenski spends the time to describe a Hen and her chicks and then turn around in the same chapter and talk about the brutality of fire.

2. The illustrations: The book has about 30 illustrations through out the book and were all drawn by the author.

3. The message: As a Christian I was amazed (and encouraged) to see how the conflict is resolved in this book. You don't see books that have a strong Christian(or any other religion for that matter) find literary success, but this book does it, and does it well.

What I didn't like:

1. Ms. Lenski tried to be as authentic as she could with the telling of this book, down to the dialect the people spoke. It took some getting used to while reading, and while I appreciate her desire to be true to the people and the time, I think young readers will struggle with it today.

This would be a great book for 9-10 year old readers.

Strawberry Girl won the Newbery Medal in 1946

I am doing the 2016 PopSugar reading challenge, and I chose this for a book based in my home state. I worked in the youth services department of a library for 6 years, so from time to time I enjoy picking up some juvenile fiction that I haven't read.Strawberry Girl is a classic, and I'm amazed that I haven't read it. It is set in Central Florida and centers around two families; one is a family who left Marion County, Florida to move a little further South - they have a sense of determination and enjoy self-sufficiency. However, their neighbors are living in poverty, largely due to the father's alcoholism. For a little bit, this short book got very heavy - but the end was really sweet and I really enjoyed it.

I read this aloud to my four kids (ages 5, 7, 9, 11) and we all really liked it. There are many lessons to take away from this book. Loving your enemy, perseverance, redemption. The book is not fluffy or sugar coated. There are parts that are hard to swallow (primarily in regards to the mean spiritedness of the neighbors) but how the family perseveres through tribulation is encouraging. I really love books written prior to the 50's because they are generally dependable in how they present parent/child interaction. The characters respect their parents (what a concept!) and they do as they are told.

Wanted to go back and read this to see why it was one of my favorite books growing up and remembering how much all of my children enjoyed it. Love how Lenski captured the area and people who were the early fruit growers and how they survived. No wonder it won the book awards. It is one of her best books, if not the best.

One of my daughters brought this book home and we read it out loud together when they were young. We all loved it! It is one family's story from the 1800's pioneer days in Florida - making a living growing crops and interacting with neighbors. It had been many years since I read it so I decided to buy it for my e-reader. I would have given it 10 stars if I could have because I thoroughly enjoyed it again.
Worla
A touching, realistic tale of the power of neighborly love and kindness. The main character's personal account of learning to love and forgive neighbors who are very unlovable is challenging and relatable for children. Also, the Boyer family's "can do" spirit and hard work ethic is admirable. I read this to my second-grader and my other bigs and littles joined in on the read-aloud sessions with glee.

Lois Lenski is one of the true greats in the history of children's literature. Her books hold up through the years. This book is a delight that should please children of any age.
Loved this book! Used it as a 'read-aloud' with my granddaughter and we both enjoyed it very much. The story of a girl who struggles with being treated unfairly, controlling her own temper, and finding satisfaction in hard work done well resonates and with all age groups.
It was a great read and well worth both the investment and space on an overcrowded bookshelf.
