In this loving story of a motherless family, a tall, plain woman comes to stay with them.
A very sweet, touching story. Sad that many children’s books revolve around a parent dying–still, this is a story worth reading. A good book for kids reading above their grade-level.
A lamb dies at birth. No description beyond that.
Big sister thinks the worst thing about her little brother is that their Mama died giving birth to him. Boy worried that a mail-order bride won’t like them, asked in a very longing way.
