Publishers Description
Six-year-old Anna Pellowski's older siblings, Jacob, Franciszek, Barney, Mary and Pauline are exposed to English at school, but only Polish is spoken at home. The younger childrenAnna, Julian, Anton barely know a word of their new country's language, but then neither do many of their neighbors. Some years before, in the mid 1800's, Anna's mother, father and brother Baby Jacob had come from Poland to live in a tiny sod house in Western Wisconsin and establish the very first farm in the entire Latsch Valley. Now the growing family lives in a real house, with neighbors on every side, and the world for quietly curious Anna is filled with fascinating possibilitiesas well as lots of hard work. Sometimes she dreams of going back to the Poland she is always hearing about, but increasingly she realizes that life in Latsch Valley, with its rich cultural rhythm of work, play, and religious faith, holds everything she could possible want.

Plenty of Drama and Action  Nov 28, 2008
I love this book! Anna is a sweet, adorable six-year-old, who lives with her large Polish family in rural Wisconsin during the 1870's.

Far from living a boring life, she experiences one adventure after another from getting caught in a hail storm while tending the sheep to having a train locomotive bear down on her when the sleigh she is in gets caught on the train tracks.

Sprinkled throughout are moments of humor, such as when Anna knits mittens to keep her kitten warm and moments of sadness, such as when the children in the valley die from diphtheria.

Anna's narrative also offers a wonderful introduction to the Polish customs of Easter and Christmas. You will learn about gvjozdki and Dyngus.

Her gratitude for little things like her Christmas bag of candy and thoughtfulness when she plans a special surprise with her sisters for her mother's name day are heartwarming.

For those who wonder what life was like back then for a large Polish family, this offers a realistic slice of life with plenty of drama and action.

This series is being reprinted as the Latsch Valley Farm Stories published by Bethlehem Books with a new illustrator, Roseanne Sharpe.
 
Lovely story of pioneering family life in Wisconsin.  Apr 7, 1999
First Farm in the Valley was a beautiful story of Wisconsin pioneering/farming around the 1870's. It speaks to traditional families and the warmth, strength and values of hard-working people. I appreciated the religious values of this Polish immigrant family and my daughter equally enjoyed it.
