Sarah Plain and Tall

Sarah Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan.

Review by Annalise Rose, age 9 (but practically 10).

This is a story that takes place in pioneer days.  It all started on a prairie in Maine.

A girl named Anna was living with her brother and father.  Her brother was named Caleb, her father was named Jacob.

Anna was a sweet and shy girl.  She loved to run in the fields.  One day her father, who she called Papa, came up to her and Caleb and he showed them a letter he had written to a girl named Sarah.  And a letter from Sarah.

He told his children that she was coming for a month and that she is coming on a train and she is plain and tall.

Why is she coming, asked Anna.

Her father said "If she likes it here she stay and marry me."

Anna and Caleb loved Sarah and she loved them.

I recommend this book!
