Here's a book just for girls. It's the story of Rebecca, a little girl who lives on a small parcel of the Maine countryside called Sunnybrook Farm. Accompany her as she discovers the joy of a life of faith; sit beside her as she soaks in the wisdom of "Uncle Jerry" Cobb, the old stagecoach driver; and join her as she struggles with different facets of human nature and learns lessons of life -- sometimes the hard way.

Recommeded for ages 8 to 12.

Publishers Description
A classic story of growing up in Victorian America, retold for today's reader. Novelist Jack London wrote, "Rebecca won my heart....She is real; she lives; ...I love her. Why could she not have been my daughter?"

Okay Book  Oct 22, 2006
This book is okay. I wouldn't read it more than twice. It was really boring till the end. Then it got good. I would recomend this book to kids from ages 9 - teens. Rebecca has a life that i would never want. She is so happy and bouncy. I don't like that. In my opinion, this is book is not very exciting. I was so glad when I finished it. Because then I could read a better book. It was kind of hard to follow, cause a lot of things were going on at once. I really think younger kids should read it. I don't think it deserves a classic. But that is just in my opinon. Read it if you would like. I just didn't like it. It was okay though. So good luck!
The Eternal Rebecca Randall  Oct 16, 2006
Rebecca has been my friend since I read her story in a cheap Whitman hardback when I was a little girl. A lively and creative 10-year-old girl is sent to her maiden aunts to receive a good education, but chafes under the restrictive yoke of her elder aunt. As Rebecca learns to channel her energies into positive action, she remains unquenched by her dour aunt and lends joy to both the younger aunt, but also the elderly Cobbs and her best friend, Emma Jane Perkins. The vocabulary in the story may be a bit high for younger readers as REBECCA was not actually written as a children's story; it was the best seller of the year 1904. There is a sequel, NEW CHRONICLES OF REBECCA, that is worth finding, with more adventures of Rebecca, the Simpson children, and even Emma Jane.
Rebecca of sunnybrook farm, how dull.  Oct 27, 2005
As I started to read this book I got a sense that it was not going to be the thrilling adventure that I usually look for in a book. This was okay because sometimes you need a book that can slow it down and you can relax with. I am sorry to report that this book was so slow it almost came to a stop. Although it is a story of a girl who moves from her farm home to a small town to live with her aunts nothing more exciting than Rebecca selling enough soap to get a lamp for some friends that aren't very well off happens. While it is a great thing to see family helping family to get an education, something more adventurous like a love interest, or a friend saving her best and most loved toy from the clutches of a wicked aunt could spice up a story. Maybe I am a reader who is not excited by someone learning to sew and this kind of book is your cup of tea but it is not mine. In my opinion the lack of substanance is almost suffocating and I will not be drowned by another reading of this book.
Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm: Unabridged (The Whitman classics library)  Sep 21, 2005
It was well worth the wait; my father called me "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" when I was a small girl. It is a warm and endearing story. I may have to get some more of the books in the series!
Higher reading level, a bit confusing!  Jul 12, 2005
At age 10, Rebecca is sent away by her mother to the village of Riverboro to live with her two aunts, strict Aunt Miranda, and soft-hearted Aunt Jane. In her long carriage trip from Sunnybrook Farm to Riverboro, Rebecca meets the good Mr. Cobb, the carriage-driver and soon become friends. During her first days at Riverboro with her aunts, Rebecca tries to be obedient and useful, however, nothing she does seems to please Aunt Miranda and Rebecca feels unwanted and longs to go back home. But a visit to Mr. Cobb allows her to discover that even if Aunt Miranda doesn't particularly want her, Aunt Jane sure does for she shows it with daily affection.

Rebecca soon learns to love both of her aunts, and meets many new friends in Riverboro, some young and some old. Rebecca begins school, amazing everyone with her abilities and wisdom. The entire idea of Rebecca coming to Riverboro in the first place was for it to be the 'making of her,' meaning having her grow up into a fine young lady who will be able to return to Sunnybrook Farm and help her mother and her six brothers and sisters by working hard. Aunt Miranda and Aunt Jane risk and lower their spendings in order to be able to send Rebecca and keep her at the grand school of Wareham. There, Rebecca begins a life surrounded by responsabilities and begins to say goodbye to her childhood and hello to 'the making of her.'

Although the book is well-written, with many details and a high variety of vocabulary, I feel rather confused in many of the chapters, it is sometimes hard to keep up with everything that seems to be going on, the author seems to change the subject too sudden sometimes and begins talking about something different. Some chapters talk about the past and go as a total blurr, having me feel as if I had been staring at a blank piece of paper the whole time. There are fun scenes, there are some more boring scenes and there are heart-warming scenes. I do not recommend "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" to younger readers because the reading level is quite high, so you might not understand a lot of it. If you are one of those people who cannot read a book with too many character sub-plots, then you'll probably find Rebecca to be a hard book and might not enjoy it.
