Midwife's Apprentice Paperback Book
Grades: 5 - 7
A poor girl in medieval England gains a name, a purpose, and a future in this “delightful” and beloved Newbery Medal-winning book. Now with a new cover! A girl known only as Brat has no family, no home, and no future until she meets Jane the Midwife and becomes her apprentice. As she helps the short-tempered Jane deliver babies, Brat—who renames herself Alyce—gains knowledge, confidence, and the courage to want something in life for the first time. (School Library Journal, starred review) Introduction by Lois Lowry. Paperback, 144 pages.
