Read Alouds--Strawberry Girl

We just finished another great read aloud entitled, Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski.  It is the story of two feuding families in the pioneering days of Florida.  This was a great book to read while we were in Florida on vacation.  It is filled with a lot southern dialect which was a real treat for me to read each night.  I found myself going up stairs after reading and still talking like that.  It was a quick read but both the boys and I really liked it and would recommend it.

Wondering if we could get a sample of the southern cracker dialect?
