A simple , enjoyable program for kids
14 July 2003 | by (Melbourne , Australia) – See all my reviews

One of my all time favorite shows. It was just a simple, enjoyable program for kids about the daily experiences of an American farm girl at the beginning of the 1960s.

Lori Martin and the rest of the cast were great. As with George Reeves in the "Adventures of Superman", Lori provided a positive role model for the younger set. Shame there isn't more of it these days!

An even greater pity is the fact that Lori never pursued her acting career and has long since dropped out of sight. A quick search of the internet will reveal that one of our fellow "Lori watchers" has established a tribute website. Thanks to that person.

Anyway, she was a grand little performer - a kind of miniature Liz Taylor for the homework brigade.

Come back Lori. We, your rapidly graying fans, need you ! Hands up all those who would like to turn the clock back to 1960.
