Dear Fourth Grade Parents,
Next week, I will be introducing our next novel, _Strawberry Girl_ by Lois Lenski. For those of you with boys, don’t worry – despite the name, _Strawberry Girl_ is definitely not a sweet and syrupy book.
The novel ties in with the students’ study of Florida history. It is set at the turn of the last century in central Florida and explores one family’s experience as Florida “Crackers” – a harsh and sometimes violent life.
All students should have a copy by the end of next week (January 24). E-reader versions are fine. Below is availability from local libraries, as well as purchase prices.
MMS Media Center: 7 copies
Alachua County Public Library: 5 copies available, as well as a downloadable e-book
Amazon: $6.29 paperback, $5.79 Kindle version
Barnes and Noble: $6.99 paperback, $6.39 Nook version
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
