Publisher's Summary

The land was theirs, but so were its hardships. Strawberries - big, ripe, and juicy. Ten-year-old Birdie Boyer can hardly wait to start picking them. But her family has just moved to the Florida backwoods, and they haven't even begun their planting. "Don't count your biddies 'fore they're hatched, gal young un!" her father tells her.

Making the new farm prosper is not easy. There is heat to suffer through, and droughts, and cold snaps. And, perhaps most worrisome of all for the Boyers, there are rowdy neighbors, just itching to start a feud.

Excellent For Children

Would you consider the audio edition of Strawberry Girl to be better than the print version?

The author, Lois Lenski, is brilliant, and the narrator does a great job of bringing out the different characters with her voices. My children were captivated and did not want me to shut it off.

Classic

Well read. Important lessons for everyone to learn. Really speaks to the children and puts things at their level.

Poor reading, great story

I love the story of "Strawberry Girl", but I feel like the person who read it used to much emphasis on the country accent. Sometimes I found it hard to understand. The story, though, is AMAZING.

great story... volume difficult to control

love the story and the history. makes me want to find her other books. the story teller was great in voices and inflection. only complaint is the yelling in the book or raised voices would hurt the ears but if you turned it down you couldn't hear the book.

Nom Nom Nom I ate it up

Ok so I literally ate it up i ground It down, put it in soup, and ate it after killing six hogs and burning a family's home to the ground.

IT WAS AWESOME LIKE AMAZING inspiring, so I'm twelve right and a boy none the less so you know books about little girls picking strawberries REALLY I mean come on I was miserable when I was told I had to read it. THEN I read it and it blew me away and I mean like 🤗😇😱👊🏼 kinda inspiration. So I encourage you to read it it's well worth a credit and whatever else you wanna give. Lois Lenski may be dead in a hole somewhere in flo rida's house singing good feeling but Matt Damon could that PHSYCO write inspiration! SO TAKE ONLY THIS FROM THE BOOK IT TASTES LIKE STRAWBERRIES AND NUCA COLA FROM FALLOUT 4 btw if a person named even Roth reads this I'll tell you I do not know you I am just telepathic
