Sarah, Plain and Tall - Patricia MacLachlan

This book is about is about family and loneliness. The mother dies while giving birth to her son. The father finds out that it is hard to keep up with a farm and two children so he starts looking for another wife. I would use this when talking about narrative writing. I would have the students write their own personal narratives about their first experiences with a person who becomes very important in their lives, such as a best friend or a new teacher. I would do this in a second grade classroom.
