The book stands strongly on its own as lively and immediate history. It could anchor a prairie/pioneer theme in the upper elementary or middle school curriculum. Kirkus: Warren, basing her work on the memoir of Grace McCance Snyder about her pioneer childhood in Nebraska, also tells the riveting story of life on the prairie and the determination of the families who settled there. I liked the juicy details. I wish you could visit our school.

Loved this book. Went back to that time when hardships were normal. Life was hard but everyone was always happy. I felt so inadequate after reading this. Those women worked so hard accomplished so much and had something to show for all their hard work. Great reading!

Short, not that good.

Pioneer Girl offers a glimpse of a bygone era in Nebraska. The book reads similarly to the works of Laura Ingalls Wilder although "Pioneer Girl" lacks the warmth and detail of the Little House books. The book is enjoyable, but it feels threadbare - lacking emotion and lacking the miniscule details of everyday life which make a community unique.

I've only read the first few pages and love it so far.

Having read Andrea Warren's previous books, especially the first verson of this book, I also enjoyed this one, especially her Afterword. Andrea does tremendous research. As a storyteller, I was thrilled she gave me permission to use her work in my presentation: Use It Up, Wear It Out, Do Without.

Now, I'm reading her newest book,"Under Siege!" about three children who are telling their stories of the Civil War battle for Vicksburg.
