This is really a lovely little story beautifully told deceptively simple full of hope and fear and love Sarah Plain and Tall winner of the Newbery Medal one the shortest books ever to win that award was written in 1985 but feels like something from a much earlier time It could have been written 80 or 100 years ago It's timeless It's based on a true story about the author's ancestors There are a lot of mail order bride romances out there but this is one from the children's point of view although you catch fascinating glimpses of what's going on in the minds of their father Jacob and Sarah his potential brideAnna and Caleb are two young children who in the US plains with their widowed father in maybe the late 1800s Their mother died the day after Caleb was bornThey had come for her in a wagon and taken her away to be buried And then the cousins and aunts and uncles had come and tried to fill up the house But they couldn'tNow Jacob has advertised for a mail order wife and Sarah Wheaton from Maine who describes herself as plain and tall writes a letter to him They arrange for Sarah and her gray cat Seal to come visit their family for a month to see if it's a good fit before making a permanent decisionCaleb wears his heart on his sleeve desperately wanting Sarah to stay but afraid that their house is too small and that he is too loud and pesky Anna hopes too but is cautious and watchful Their father Jacob learns to laugh and sing again even as he is arguing with Sarah about whether she should wear his overalls ride his skittish horse and help fix the roof And Sarah Sarah misses the sea But there are always things to miss no matter where you are” And things and people that work their way into your heart and find a home there I'd love to know about the original story but there's not a lot out there at least that I've been able to find so far other than that MacLachlan's mother andor aunt begged her to write a book about this story

Sarah Plain and TallIs children's literature classic is perfect for fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie books historical fiction and timeless stories using rich and beautiful language Sarah Plain and Tall gently explores themes of abandonment loss and loveSupports the Common Core State Standar. “The dogs loved Sarah first”Years ago someone recommended this children’s book to me and I’m sorry I waited so long to read it Not a hint of condescension in here; just beautifully evocative simplicity “Gophers ran back and forth across the road stopping to stand up and watch the wagon Far off in a field a woodchuck ate and listened Ate and listened”It’s a touching feel good story but much strong characters subtle emotions a well drawn setting and threads of tension carrying it along Perfect for readers of any age and I loved it
