Anna and her brothers and sisters live with heir mother and father on a farm a ways away from the town, but near other Polish families on their farms. Anna’s whole family helps with the planting and harvesting of the wheat, oats, hay and garden vegetables so they are always busy.

I'm giving this four stars, simply because my daughter didn't like the story. However, that is just from personal opinion, not so much about the book itself. She was troubled by some of the things she read, like sicknesses and a character or two dying. However, she isn't used to this sort of thing and that these things did happen back in those times. I was hoping to expand her reading a little further and this book had gotten good reviews. For myself, I give this book five stars; just because my daughter didn't like it doesn't mean that other kids wouldn't, and I think that kids these days could use a little more understanding of work ethic and values that we don't see so much in books today.

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.

This book is a must read after Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It gives an AMAZING perspective into the lives of Polish immigrants in Trempeleau County, Wisconsin. Various stimulating visual images are given of the cultural and Catholic traditions of this first generation in America lifestyle. You will come to love the characters. I have used this book for ten years with my fourth grade G/T female students and they revel in it! As more and more immigrants come to the valley, their heritage provides strength and a unifying factor. The author, who still lives in the area (Winona, MN) will respond if your children write to her.

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.
