INTRODUCTION:  Sarah, Plain and Tall is the story of two children, Caleb and Anna, who live on a prairie farm with their father.  Papa, whose wife died, puts an ad in the paper for a wife and Sarah from Maine responds to his ad.

Sarah comes to visit the prairie and says she will stay for a month "to see how it is."  Everyone falls in love with Sarah and wants her to stay.

You will follow Sarah's travels as you read Sarah, Plain and Tall and keep a written and illustrated journal of what you learn through various activities on these passages.  Go to the TASK button and enjoy your journey!
