The year is 1910. Sarah Wheaton answers an add for a mail-order bride placed by a Kansas farmer named Jacob Witting---a widower whose family still grieves their mother's death. But Sarah wins their lonely hearts with her nurturing ways and her warm stories of her home in Maine---and they heal her homesickness with a quiet acceptance of her help and, eventually, her love. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. The 1986 Newbery Medal winner.

Publisher's Description

"Did Mama sing every day?" Caleb asks his sister Anna.

"Every-single-day," she answers. "Papa sang, too."

This Newbery Medal–winning book is the first of five books in Patricia MacLachlan's chapter book series about the Witting family. Set in the late nineteenth century and told from young Anna's point of view, Sarah, Plain and Tall tells the story of how Sarah Elisabeth Wheaton comes from Maine to the prairie to answer Papa's advertisement for a wife and mother. Before Sarah arrives, Anna and her younger brother Caleb wait and wonder. Will Sarah be nice? Will she sing? Will she stay?

This children's literature classic is perfect for fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie books, historical fiction, and timeless stories using rich and beautiful language. Sarah, Plain and Tall gently explores themes of abandonment, loss and love.
