    " Wow, a newbery I liked. haven't read one of those in a while. "

    " It's good. It reminds me a lot of Laura Ingalls Wilder in the 1930s. However there are more than a few numerous references to "fat" people which seemed odd. "

    " Enjoyed the story of a summer on a farm. Liked the heroine. "

    " Thimble Summer was just a so-so book for me. Sweet story of a girl growing up in rural America and the joys of the simple life of family and farm-life. Not a memorable book nor story. "

    " I'm trying to read some of the Newberry Award winners that I did not get to as a kid. This was 1938's winner, and hasn't aged as well as some of the other older ones. "

    " I've read this book before, but I couldn't remember what it was about so I checked it out again and read it. It's a pretty interesting book about Garnet (Hauser?) Anyway, she lives on a farm and it's about one of her "Lucky summers " when she finds a "magic" silver thimble. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darby | 4/7/2010

    " I was given this book in 1st grade by my teacher. I fell in love with it. I read it over and over for years....I'm 38 now and still find it as wonderful. I also began collecting silver thimbles then.....I now have quite a few. : ) "

    " Well, I can't judge on how many stars to give this book. But I really liked reading it. I've enjoyed reading it. It was one of my school books I have to read. It was really good. I just can't decide how many stars. "
