Caddie Woodlawn's Family (Magical Melons) by Carol Ryrie Brink

Caddie Woodlawn book's sequel. This one has a bunch of stories about her family. They are really cute and just as fun as the first book.
All the stories are not just about Caddie this time but about her sisters and brothers too.The book is named after the story about the Magical Melons. The kids find melons in the hay loft and think they were put there magically but sadly later they find out that they were a special treat but since they already ate half of them they didn't get to enjoy them later with the rest of the family.
I thought the chapter about the great aunt and her wig was really funny. And Caddie can't seem to keep white dresses clean because something always comes up that makes her get messy. She is such a tom boy.
This would be a great read out loud to all the kids book!
