Based on a tale that has captivated children for generations, this enchanting family movie radiates the excitement of pioneer life. Emily Schulman (Troop Beverly Hills) stars as Caddie, a spirited 11-year-old growing up in the wilds of the 1860's Wisconsin. Although her mother (Season Hubley, TV's Family) hopes to make a lady out of her, the pigtailed tomboy yearns for adventure.

Didn't Read The Book But I Saw The Movie And liked It! Oct 14, 2005
I didn't read the book that this movie is based on but I saw the movie Caddie Woodlawn on TV and I thought it was good. It stars Emily Schulman as Caddie a free spirited tomboyish girl living in the pioneer days. If you like this movie I also recommend the TV show Christy in which Emily Schulman played one of the students of the title character (I think the character she played was named Ruby Mae) and I also recommend Little House on the Prairie and Anne Of Green Gables.
Ideal viewing for your daughters. Dec 18, 2004
I saw this movie a long time ago, when I was a kid, and went back to view it again this week. It really is one of the best movies I can think of for children to see, especially your daughters. It's dramatically compelling and enjoyable to see even as an adult, and it teaches children the valuable lessons of standing up for what you believe in, doing what you know is right even when other people don't agree, and giving of yourself to those less fortunate. Caddie is a courageous, strong-willed girl who really understands herself and how the world should be. And she's willing to do whatever she can to make it better. I can't imagine a better lesson for a child to learn.
Great movie for kids and family Aug 2, 2003
This movie is based on the book of the same name which I have not read, so I can't compare it to the book. However, seeing the movie makes me want to recommend the book to children. Caddie Woodlawn is a tomboy in the pioneer days of Wisconsin. Her lively spirit, and her red hair and pigtails remind me of Pippi Longstocking, though they don't stick out at the sides like Pippi's do, and Caddie is a "real" person, not a fantasy.
When Caddie's "proper" Boston cousin, Annabelle, comes to stay with the family, Caddie resists her mother's instructions to follow Annabell's example in etiquette and manners, and instead plays fairly harmless jokes on her. But Caddie really does have a heart of gold and a sense of justice. She's appalled at the treatment of her neighbors toward two half-breed children in the community, and secretly buys them shoes. Along with her father, she insists on keeping peace with the nearby Dakota Indians.
Caddie must deal with such emotional and common childhood issues as the loss of her dog, being bullied, jealousy over her brother's love interest, and sticking up for what she believes is right. At the expense of being punished or disapproved, she does the right thing, and in the end, she is the one who saves the community from a violent confrontation with the Dakotas.
I think the acting was very well done, with a wide variety of characterization and emotions. It's a wonderful movie for kids and family.
Pretty Good! May 30, 2001
It was a pretty good movie that we watched at school because we were learning about indians and pioneers. It's a very long movie, and gets boring at times, but they always do something to liven it up!
Great story-not the best acting. Nov 24, 1999
I remember when my third grade teacher introduced the book to my class by reading it to us. I loved it then and I love it now. I recently saw the video at our library so I checked it out for my 7 year old grand-daughter and she loved it as well, and wanted to share it with her 2nd grade class. She is also interested in folk heroes and pioneers, so this little girl who was friends with Indians intrigued her. Now we're looking for the video for her video library.
