    I really enjoyed this book it was very easy to read as well as made you feel like you were just listening to a story This book teaches children many things such as trying new things are a good thing having responsibility is also good and to always overcome your fears


  2. Liz Liz says:

    Excellent book 5 stars


  3. Nancy Nancy says:

    A sweet book easy to read I really enjoyed this one and I was impressed by how she took a topic like childbirth and made it accessible for a younger audience I don't think any parent would object to the topic handled in the way it is

    The country is in the middle of the Depression and even if it wasn't it would still have been difficult for Viney's family to pay Missy Violet the midwife for the birth of Viney's newest sibling In lieu of payment Missy Violet takes on Viney as an apprentice and teaches her the ways of baby catchingI think this slim little book which won the Coretta Scott KingJohn Steptoe New Talent award will probably gain a place on reading lists and as a read aloud in classrooms in the coming years It is very short and told in an episodic manner but it becomes clear very uickly that this is the story of Viney's journey toward confidence and a sense of purpose At first she is frightened by the noise and mess of childbirth but gradually Viney learns to be a true assistant to Missy Violet Hathaway is able to use few words to tell a gentle interesting story that evokes all the sights sounds and smells of a Depression era black community

    Missy Violet is the town midwife When Viney's father can't pay her for the birth of another daughter Missy Violet suggests that she take 10 year old Viney on as an assistant to pay off the debt Viney is excited to help the midwife even though she doesn't know where babies come from She learns soon though and also learns about the different types of plants and herbs Missy Violet uses and what they are used for Viney is proud of being such a help to Missy Violet and knowing about babies than snooty Margie Poole Told in a girlish observant voice with humor Viney's voice brings vivid life to the characters of Charles her rascally cousin; the scary Rausy brothers; addle brained James Henry who believes the Lord Charles called him to preach; Viney's bold friend Arma Jean; and Mr Grit the widower who's set on Missy Violet


  6. Colette Colette says:

    Eleven year old girls are at an awkward age Still girls looking forward to growing up but innocent Viney was such a girl thinking babies came from cabbage patches or tree stumps but the summer she turned 11 was a turning point in her life Her Papa can't pay for baby number 7 so Missy Violet asks for a helper for the summer Viney learns than just catching babies courage strength that she has much to give and kindness to share


  7. Katie Katie says:

    I thought this book was adorable Barbra Hathaway made me want to learn how to do some baby catching The story was beautifully written about a young girl growing up over a course of a short period of time When missy went away she had to deliver a baby But not without the help of another baby catcher from a few towns over The girl learned about what herbs take away pain and what to give her to drink to calm her nerves She was a proud little girl but she did not dare show it


  8. Roxanne Roxanne says:

    When 11 year old Viney's youngest sister is born in the early 1900's her father doesn't have enough money to pay the midwife He offers Viney's help for the summer instead Viney learns about various herbs and how to comfort laboring mothers She learn that people who are sick often need a kind words as much as anything A short and sweet read about growing up and becoming confident


  9. Tanja Tanja says:

    A uick read about a young girl who spends the summer with a midwife in order to settle her family's debts She learns much about the catchin' of babies and all sorts of herbal remedies of help during child birth Even though much shorter and set in a very different time and place it reminded me about The Midwife's Apprentice


  10. Laura Laura says:

    I found this book stuffed on my class bookshelves I have no idea how long I've had it nor where I got it but it's a sweet little bookIf it weren't for the subject matter I'd say this was writen for upper elementary However I know many parents would be upset with their 11 year olds learning about birthing babies so I'd recommend it for no younger than 12
