I read this book because it won the John Newberry Medal in 1977 and, more recently, perennially turns up on banned book lists. What could be so bad about an award-winning children’s book? The answer is “nothing.” Now having read it, for the life of me, I cannot find one objectionable thing about it. No sex, no race, no gender or sexuality. No curse words. No violence.

This book is gentle and real, tracing the story of an orphan in 1800’s Vermont during the Industrial Revolution. It deals with tougher topics and is well written. It took me and my students a very long time to read as nothing really happens in the book, or at least at a very slow pace. Unsure whether I will keep it in the curriculum for next year.

I agreed to facilitate a book club for a group of homeschool kids who are reading novels related to the period in history that they are studying. First up was the Industrial Revolution! This book got mediocre reviews from the kids, but I really liked it. Lyddie's not the most lovable character, but her work ethic was so intense you had to be awed by her. I loved that she would tell herself (in her unfailingly modest way) that she could do anything because she once stared down a bear. Even the kids who were lukewarm on the book had to admit the way Lyddie fiercely fights for her family's future was impressive. I also found her relationship with money to be so interesting. She gives all her money away at one point, but later is a hardened skinflint.

In the book group we talked about child labor, labor reform, what it would be like to work at 14-hour day, and what we thought happened to Lyddie's father.
