Picked this up for the girls -- it's a Newberry medal winner -- and wound up quite enjoying it myself. ( )

The girl hasn't had a name or a home until the midwife found her in the dung heap, keeping warm. The midwife, Jane, is no saint but she does take the girl in, calling her Beetle or Brat, or worse, making her work hard for her keep and not letting her really learn how to birth babies. Can the girl make a place for herself in this world?

There seems to be a certain type of book that appeals to adults who give out awards to kids but that I question whether kids would ever pick up on their own, and this is one of them. The main trouble is, though it is a short book, not much happens. It's much more about the girl - who names herself Alyce - and her growth than any story arc or even one event that happens in her life. Some of the interactions are so subtle I doubt a young reader would pick up on it, like why the boys who tease Beetle eventually leave Alyce alone. It's set in the Middle Ages, and the author has clearly done her research on medicine and midwifery of that time period. But all in all, it was a little boring. ( )

Mostly anecdotes about a young orphan who is trying to find her place in the world (as well as some food and a warm place to sleep). Alyce was a bit of a mystery until near the end while everyone else was a bit of a caricature. The story itself lacked some warmth, but was an interesting look at medieval life and midwifery.

Course evaluation:

Personal Response: This was a short book, but the subject matter was still rather mature. Alyce deals with a lot of abuse and sadness throughout the story, and her fear of failure and low self-esteem are heartbreaking. Watching her confidence blossom as she learns to read and face the risk of failure is worth reading this story.

Evaluation: Cushman describes the setting in great detail and shows a great amount of knowledge about medieval daily life. Readers will enjoy learning how archaic some of the midwife’s techniques were during this time period. Cushman’s decision to tell Alyce’s story as a series of short anecdotes moves the story forward at a fast pace and highlights the important events that move her toward her calling as a midwife. Though modern readers might not relate to Alyce’s worries and daily struggles, they will understand her fear of failure and ultimate need to overcome this fear in order to be happy. In this sense, the characterization is strong and Cushman is able to convey Alyce’s time specific story with universal ideas. ( )

This book is a children's novel that won a nobel prize in 1996 and is around the medieval England era. The Midwife’s Apprentice is the story of the main girl who was homeless who ends up falling in love with a rich man. They marry each other, and she becomes his midwife. The problem in this story is she doesn't know how to do any house duties. She struggles to learn how to cook and clean. She never knew how to do anything because all she knew was how to live out in the street. This book gives the message about maintaining hope when there are a lot of failures. ( )

She chewed on a lock of her hair to help her think. What did people want? Blackberry pie? New shoes? A snug cottage and a bit of land? She thought all that wet afternoon and finally, as she served Magister Reese his cold-beef-and-bread supper, she cleared her throat a time or two and then sofly answered: “I know what I want. A full belly, a contented heart, and a place in this world.”
If Beetle had known any prayers, she might have prayed for the cat. If she had known about soft sweet songs, she might have sung to him. If she had known of gentle words and cooing, she would have spoken gently to him. But all she knew was cursing: “Damn you, cat, breathe and live, you flea-bitten sod, or I'll kill you myself.”
