    1. Reading this in your forties while you're also reading Lies My Teacher Told Me is very different from reading it when you're ten years old. Although even then, I remember cringing a bit.Because on the one hand, Caddie Woodlawn is all kinds of awesome. She's a redhead roaming wild in the woods of western Wisconsin, and you won't catch her sewing a seam or polishing the furniture when she could be climbing a tree or plowing a field.On the other hand, this is Wisconsin in 1864. "Pioneer days," as t [...]


    2. This book was a re-read and a visit back to my childhood. I think the first time I read this was when I was reading all of the "Little House On The Prairie" series since it took place in the same area.This is the story about a young girl who has to make her own place in the world. And her place is Wisconsin. She had many trials of growing up in this story. So in a sense this book is a Bildungsroman story.I am glad that I took the time to revisit one of my favourite childhood stories.


    3. Mrs. Klatt, my 5th grade teacher, read this book to us and then we went to visit where Caddie lived (about 30 miles south of where I grew up). I loved the Little House books, but to me, I WAS Caddie. She was a bit older and more aware of what was happening around her. If you want to read about a pioneer gal who lived in western Wisconsin and was as fiesty as her red hair, read this book. You can go see and walk through Caddie's house. It's a rest area south of Downsville, Wisconsin. I try and ge [...]


    4. I read this over a period of about 4 months. I'm not sure I've ever taken that long to read a book. But I was reading it with a 6-year-old, a chapter at a time, sometimes one chapter a week, sometimes none.I cried more than a few times while reading: a dog is lost, a reformed bully saves the day, the family makes a great sacrifice for the happiness of Father Woodlawn. Each time, my little reading friend would turn around and smile at me and wipe away my tears. I tend to cry freely when I read an [...]


    5. This was my first time reading the novel as an adult and I loved it all the more for all the sense of fun and adventure I so enjoyed as a child, and found a deeper appreciation of so many more elements—such as Father and Mother’s relationship (I had tears in my eyes at the end of the chapter, Pigeons or Peacocks?) and Mr. Woodlawn’s wonderfully unorthodox parenting style with Caddie (and Mrs. Woodlawn’s trust in him in allowing this to happen), letting her “run wild with the boys” to [...]


    6. This book will always speak of home, comfort and happiness to me. I've read it multiple times growing up, and now reading it again now that I'm older, it is just as lovely. I love Brink's writing style, and her characters are just wonderful. I especially loved Caddie's relationship with her father. Reminds me of my relationship with my father. <3 And of course, Tom, Warren, Hetty, etc all help make up this exceptional book.


    7. I would give this book 5 stars based on 1 chapter alone.This chapter is Mark Twain hilarious mixed with Flannery O'Connor morbid.In this chapter the eldest boy tells a story he's made up to amuse his younger siblings while they do chores. The story starts with a farmer accidentally killing his wife then tricking passer-byer that he'd in fact killed the farmers wife by punching her and her subsequent falling into a near by lake and drowning. HA-HA-HA! right? seriously it gets more absurd and hila [...]


    8. This Newbery Award winner tells the story of Caddie Woodlawn, age about 12, in 1864 Wisconsin, growing up on a farm with her six brothers and sisters, and her two parents. Brink based the novel (and a sequel) on the stories her grandmother told about living in Western Wisconsin during the time of the Civil War. The family is tight-knit and the children have many adventures, including exploring the river and woods near their homestead, and visiting the local tribe of Native Americans (“Indian J [...]


    9. Charming story! I just fell in love with the Woodlawn family, their hard work ethics, family values and trust in the Lord. It was so special to know that the author was writing about her own grandmother. The illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman were just breathtaking - I plan to seek out more of her work. Some of my favorite quotes from the book:"She loved both spring and fall. At the turning of the year things seemed to stir in her that were lost sight of in the commonplace stretches of winter a [...]


    10. Winner of the 1936 Newbery, this book centers on the tomboy of the title, the middle girl in a pioneer family of seven children in the open plains of 1860s Wisconsin. Strongly evocative of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, it's a wide-eyed, child's view of American pioneer life. The Indians are friendly, primitive, and highly mistrusted by the whites. The Civil War is far away; in one of the bits possibly most surprising to those who think of America as a classless society, Mr. Woodlawn has paid s [...]


    11. I saved this for the last of the Newberys (yes! I'm done!) because I was sure I would like it, and I wanted to go out on a good note.I did like it, though I know I would have liked it a lot more if I hadn't already read so many similar, better books (i.e. Little House). But I can appreciate how rare it was to find interesting, funny books about real children at the time this was written. Still, I'm sort of surprised that so many of you love this so much.Hard to believe it's by the same author as [...]


    12. This is one of my very favorite books now. I laughed, I cried, I hugged the book when it ended. I can't wait to share it with Phoebe some day.



    13. I just love this book. I got completely choked up about a dozen different times - I've absolutely become my mother.


    14. Caddie had red hair and wore an apron and a dress. She was 11 years old and had a brother named Baby Joe, an older sister named Clara, and brothers named Tom and Warren. She also had sisters named Hetty and Minnie. She lived in Wisconsin in the 1860's. Once she rode on a pole raft that came apart, and she liked to pick berries. She fell in an ice pond and got sick. And she helped her father to fix a clock. Her father told her a story about what it was like when he grew up in England. She went to [...]


    15. Excellent book! Same vein as the Little House books - but I liked it better. (Ssh, don't tell Abbi!)My favorite quote:“It’s a strange thing, but somehow we expect more of girls than boys. It is the sisters and wives and mothers, you know, Caddie, who keep the world beautiful. What a rough world it would be if there were only men and boys in it, doing things in their rough way! A woman’s task is to teach gentleness and courtesy and love and kindness. It’s a big task, too, Caddie-harder th [...]


    16. There is a lot to like about this book, and some to dislike, but as a child, it enthralled me utterly. In a world of historical children's heroines such as Polly Anna, and Mary Lennox, Caddie Woodlawn was a breath of fresh air. While the others are pointed at for being different, they are still essentially feminine, even trouble making Anne Shirley. Caddie however, is a tom boy through and through, and when I, as a child, tired of reading about proper young ladies, and instead wanted to hear abo [...]


    17. This is one of the books I read on long, delicious afternoons in San Diego in the summers of my childhood. My Bobe and Zade and I would walk to the library and pick out a pile of books, stopping at Thrifty's on the way home for nickel scoops of ice cream (my favorite: rainbow sherbet). I can't even think of this book without feeling a rush of immense love for my grandparents.One day when my Bobe had first moved to Minnesota (sometime in the late '50s) and she was trying to be a dutiful faculty w [...]


    18. This is a classic book and was really fun to read. I loved her spunky, pioneer girl attituderiding out on a rainy night alone on her horse at age 11 to warn the indians of the danger brewing in her town against them! And, when her uncle almost accidentally drowned her and offered her a silver dollar if she would not tell her mother. She said, "are you trying to bribe a Woodlawn!" She knew who she was and what a Woodlawn stood for! I want my kids to know what a "Foster" is and live up to it!


    19. The Newbery Award committee members seem to love a strong girl and Caddie is among the strongest. She roams and tarries with her ruffian brothers on the wild plains of Wisconsin around the time of the American Civil War. Caddie plays practical jokes on her cousin, runs to the Indians to warn of a massacre, and proudly displays an Indian scalp belt for all the town to see. Caddie finally begins to see that becoming a lady is not just learning to quilt and say the right words and wear fancy clothe [...]




    20. Newbery re-read. A classic Newbery. Slice-of-life of a young girl growing up in frontier Wisconsin. Well-written and well-paced. Captures a time-and-a-place if from the perspective of a young girl who's been allowed to run wild. Nothing especially bad or difficult happens in this one. But we get to see people with different backgrounds making different choices. We don't quite get to see who Caddie becomes. So not high art, but well executed.



    21. Caddie Woodlawn If you’ve read and loved the “Little House” book series, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, you’ll love the book Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink. This enchanted book follows the tales and adventures of tomboy Caddie Woodlawn, much like Laura Wilder. Each chapter is a new adventure, a new way for Caddie to get into trouble.Caddie is a pioneer girl born and raised in Wisconsin during the 1860s. She was a nuisance to her mother and older sister, Clara. But she was the apple of he [...]


    22. I read this as a child and then later as an older teen or young adult (I can't remember when I re-read it and my Mom probably read it to us the first time. . . ). This book is one of my favorite kinds of books. My first "big kid" books that I read by myself were the Little House books. A lot of the books that I read as a teenager were historical fiction and some of my favorite were set on the American frontier (that is until I discovered Jane Austin. After that England called to me). Historical [...]


    23. Caddie Woodlawn is a story set in the 1860’s and is about a little girl, named Caddie, who is a tomboy. Caddie is very adventurous and is always with her brothers running wild, instead of in the home with the girls and her mother. Caddie, has also formed a bond with the neighboring Indians. She finds them intriguing and harmless. Caddie does not see color, but rather regular people when she looks at the Indians. Caddie is responsible for stopping a rampage between her family and others against [...]


    24. Caddie Woodlawn is a real adventurer. She'd rather hunt than sew, plow than bake, and tries to beat her brothers' dares every chance she gets. Her mother and sisters just don't understand why she doesn’t want to be lady-like and sew all day. Her courage and her faith to peace and friendship are so strong that she can eleminate a massacre. Then when her cousin comes over, and she has to make a big decision that will affect her future, she opens her heart and decides to give things a change.I lo [...]


    25. For some reason, I never read this book as a child. As an adult studying children's literature, I had the opportunity to hear Carol Ryrie Brink speak and get a signed copy of the book -- and she didn't even seem that old, though it was 40+ years after the publication of Caddie! I then read it with my children. I don't believe in censoring children's reading for any reason. But, there are some books from the past which, while still worth reading, I feel are better read aloud so that the parent (o [...]


    26. The book would make a great choice for a mother-daughter book club for girls age 8-12. The story explores what it means to be a girl, a young lady, and a woman. Caddie is a rough-and-tumble girl who favors adventure and fun with her brothers. The book also has a few teaching points from American history -- pioneers and Native Americans, the Civil War, and Abraham Lincoln. The book started off slow for me and seemed like a collection of vignettes but soon developed into a moving story. My 6-year- [...]
