Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (Wiggin)

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Kate Douglas Wiggin, 1903
~240 pp. (Varies by publisher.)

In this 1903 children's classic, 10-year-old Rebecca, energetic, high-spirited, and full of mischief, goes to live with her spinster aunts, one harsh and demanding, the other soft and sentimental, and spends seven difficult but rewarding years growing up in their company.

The two aunts who are raising her on a Maine farm try to turn her into a proper young lady—which eventually happens. Adults enjoy the book as well, especially the vivid glimpses of turn-of-the-century New England and its virtues. (From the publisher.)
