I read this book earlier again during the summer... and wow... this book is really heartwarming.....

I think that it is sad that she has to go away from her farm. My favorite character was Lyddie. She struggled ...

She turns ten in the first one, and grows a year older in each book. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is so funny, and I could not put it down! Lois L...
