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.

Listener Opinions

    " I've lost count of the summer nights that I would spend curled up beneath my sheets with a flashlight for company as I read this book and hoped my daddy wouldn't catch me and make me go to bed. I will always love this book. Lois Lenski has such a way with words and she brought her magic to the pages with Strawberry Girl. It's a terribly sweet story with a beautiful message that everyone will love. "

    " This book was a little frustrating. It reminded me of some of the stories I've heard about the farm my grandmother grew up at. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 2/12/2014

    " I love this book and how the family stood together through the hardships "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 2/10/2014

    " It was ok. I think it would be better as a movie. There was a lot of action, a good story-line, and decent character development. I did like how the heroine solved problems and never truly gave up on those around her. This would be a great read-aloud for much younger kids (5-8 years). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It was interesting to learn about how Florida was settled and became farmland and I also thought the author did a good job of developing the characters. The author wrote a series of books depicting life in various regions of the US and I'd be interested in reading those. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 1/17/2014

    " Some more mature themes, though they have been toned down. Try reading this one without a thick southern accent! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/16/2014

    " This is the book my kids and I are reading together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tami | 1/14/2014

    " I really love this little book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shauna | 1/11/2014

    " As a children's book, I think the language would be hard for a child to follow, but it is a good story and I was surprised by the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 12/31/2013

    " Fun story to read. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 12/20/2013

    " The story was good enough, but the dialogue was horrible to get through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eve | 12/18/2013

    " A nice little read. Lois put a lot of work into researching this set of books about children in various parts of the USA. All fiction, but based on real-life experiences. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Latharia | 12/14/2013

    " A great story from my childhood, Strawberry Girl follows the adventures of a young Cracker girl in Florida in the early 1900's. It's a colorful portrait of life during this era in American History & does a wonderful job portraying a wide array of characters with rich backgrounds! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tori | 11/21/2013

    " Strawberry Girl reminded me a lot of the Little House books or Caddie Woodlawn. I enjoyed it, although the end was so extremely unlikely that it threw off the story a little bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb | 11/15/2013

    " I read this kind of by accident! I had first read it back in elementary school and picked it up today to just browse through and reminisce. I wound up reading the whole thing in an afternoon and loving it. It's an ageless story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy Sieber | 9/21/2013

    " I read this when I was little and liked it. A strong protaganist keeps the family farm running amidst a bit of social distress. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 9/14/2013

    " This is one of the books that my dad read to me in order to get me to go to sleep at night. I really don't remember that much but I do remember the little 5 year old in me absolutely loving it so I don't want to ruin the memory I hold close to my heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phoebe | 2/23/2013

    " I can't decide if I liked it so much because of the drawings by Lois Lenski or if it was a great story. It was geared toward a younger audience than some of the other Newbery winners, which was nice. Slightly reminiscent of the Little House books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alanna | 12/31/2012

    " Charming little book. Would love to use as a read-aloud. Even includes a redemption story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/16/2012

    " I have always loved this book as well as all other Lenski books. This time I listened to the audio version and thoroughly enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 12/1/2012

    " Had a blast reading this to my kids when we were studying about Florida....trying to find another one of her books now.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NorthernLightsGirl | 11/22/2012

    " This will always be one of my favorite books by Lois Lenski. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/13/2012

    " I found this book when I was helping my nephew find books for his reading contest. What a sweet, optimistic ending to a story that really lets grown ups be selfish and proud and embittered--just like children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fleur | 6/14/2012

    " This was a very interesting book, and not at all what I was expecting. It deals a lot with the culture/history of Florida around the turn of the century. I never realized where the term "Cracker" came from, nor that originally it was not a derogatory term. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 4/11/2012

    " I remember reading this book when I was probably in the fifth grade. As I was recently browsing our library's Newbery Medal winner section, I found this and thought it would be fun to read again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 12/30/2011

    " My very first chapter book :) I stated early at 7 "
