Minnow and Rose by Judy Young, illustrated by Bill Farnsworth

2009/37 pgs.

About the Book: Two young girls meet along the Oregon Trail.

Sarah Teenlibrarian Says: This is another typical Show-Me Readers nominee. The writing is OK, the illustrations are so-so, but there's an easy lesson that can be tied into the book so it's on the list.

I will say that it is one of the better books on the Show-Me Readers list, but I think the audience for this one is a bit limited. I think 2nd-3rd grade girls who love frontier tales and Little House on the Prairie are going to be the ones who like this book.
