Cassie is now narrating and is a much more lyrical and imaginative writer than her elder half-siblings. The family is about to expand again because Sarah is pregnant and Cassie is not sure she's happy about that.
An easily readable novel for juveniles with life lessons and an historical perspective. ( )

We're back with the Witting family, but the narrator's job has been passed from Caleb to his little sister, Cassie. Cassie is now eight years old, with an imagination as large as the prairie where they live. There is change in the air, and Cassie's world is rocked from its routine; she doesn't like it, and expresses her feelings in her journal.

I adore Cassie and her imagination. This is a lovely addition to the Sarah Plain and Tall saga. ( )

Three-year-old Cassie doesn't want another baby in the family. She was hoping her mom would bring her a gift "more perfect than the moon." A quick read (less than an hour). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060751797, Paperback)

Cassie spends her days watching Grandfather and Caleb in the barn, looking out at Papa working the fields, spying on her mother, Sarah, feeding the goslings. She's an observer, a writer, a storyteller. Everything is as it should be.

But change is inevitable, even on the prairie. Something new is expected, and Sarah says it will be the perfect gift. Cassie isn't so sure. But just as life changes, people change too. And Cassie learns that unexpected surprises can bring great joy.
