Kort biografi
Lois Lenski was one of five children born to a Prussian immigrant father and a teacher mother in Ohio. She grew up in a rural community west of Springfield, and many of her fondest childhood memories were of life in this small town, according to her autobiograph. Lois was skilled at drawing, often copying pictures from books and magazines.
She attended Ohio State University, intending to become a teacher. After graduation, at the urging of her art professors, she moved to New York City to study at the Art Students League.
She took courses and supported herself with jobs such as lettering and painting greeting cards and drawing for fashion ads. In 1920, she traveled to London and Italy to study and work.
In 1921, shortly after returning from her travels, Lenski married Arthur Covey, an artist. She spent much of her early career as an illustrator of children's books, and then began to write her own stories to accompany her drawings. She published her first book, Skipping Village, in 1927. Lenski won the Newbery Honor for several of her books and the Newbery Medal in 1946. She was a prolific author who produced many regional series of books as well as character-based series.



Twelve-year-old Mary Jemison took her peaceful days on her family's farm in eastern Pennsylvania for granted. But on a spring day in 1758, something happened that changed her life forever. A band of warriors invaded the house and took the Jemison family captive. Mary was separated from her parents and brothers and sister. She traveled with the Indians to southern Ohio and later to a Seneca village on the Genesee River in what is now western New York.

Mary's new life was not easy. She missed her family terribly, and she was unaccustomed to Seneca ways. Several times she even tried to run away. But the Indians were kind to her and taught her many things about the earth, its plants, and its creatures. She became a sister to animals and to all growing things. Then Mary was finally given the chance to return to the world of white men. But she had also become a sister to the Indians. How could she leave them?

Based on a true story, here is the unforgettable tale of the legendary "White Woman of the Genesee."

It’s interesting to read this, at the beginning it reminded me of the Farmer Brown Little Golden Book, and then I saw the Easter Bunny was in a carriage as in Jan Brett’s The Easter Egg.

Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski was originally published in 1945 and was part of a regional series. This Newbery Medal winner is about a family called the Boyers who proudly call themselves Florida Crackers. They have a farm and grow strawberries and oranges. The author writes this engaging story in the dialogue of the area and captures the times and their way of life.

Part of the story revolves around the on-going feud between the hardworking Boyers and their proud but shiftless neighbours. The story unfolds through the eyes of the main character, Birdie Boyer who is about ten years old. Her straightforward manner and simplistic views give this rustic story heart.

The author was also an illustrator and her drawings help to bring the book to life. She was well known as an illustrator and did the artwork for the original “The Little Engine That Could” and the early volumes of the “Betsy-Tacy” series. Although rather dated today, Strawberry Girl gave the reader an interesting picture of life in the Florida backwoods during the 1940s.
