Review originally posted HERE

"Caddie Woodlawn" is a pleasant read for kids and adults. The characters are likable and decently developed and the plot is interesting. Caddie herself is a likable heroine possessing stubbornness, great compassion, smarts, confidence, and an adventurous spirit. She rebels against society's expectation of her which leads to her positively stand up for what is right.

Several positive aspects lie within the novel's story including (but not limited too) close-knit family, respect for others, the dangers and evil of racism, and the bitter sweetness of growing up.

The novel was enjoyable, but slow at parts.
