I just finished reading Lumber Camp Library by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock. It is about Ruby Sawyer who is the oldest of 11 children. She loves to follow her dad, who is a lumberjack, and she loves to read books. The story is sad when her dad dies and when she has to leave school to watch the younger kids so that her mom can cook meals at the lumber camp to earn money.
The story is happy when Ruby teaches some of the lumberjacks to read and when an old lady gives her some books. There is also a happy ending, but I won’t tell you about that.
Before her dad dies, he tells her that she will be a good teacher. She’s not so sure. When she grew up she taught school and started a library.
Lumber Camp Library is based on a true story. I would recommend this story to girls aged 7 and up. I don’t think boys would like it very much. I think my mom would like it.
