"Caddie Woodlawn" by Carol Ryrie Brink is the Newberry Medal winner about a young girl living in Wisconsin during the Civil War with her large family. Inspired by stories told to her by her grandmother, Carol Ryrie Brink narrates the book beautifully.
Caddie's father has raised her ever since she was born, which results in Caddie being a tomboy, choosing to play with her brothers, rather than her sisters. She has many adventures with them throughout the book, and each fast-paced chapter will keep you entertained.
One thing I love about this book (I've read it twice) is that it can be read anytime, anywhere, and it never gets old. Everyone will love this book, because it is sweet, and appropriate for all ages.
It's a quick read, which is nice if you just need a book to get you through the week.
The 24 chapters are on the shorter side, and it's 275 pages. With the end of each chapter, you're ready for another. I give it 5 stars!
