Level 8

Gladness is not a quality that Miss Polly Harrington regularly possesses, and she certainly isn’t glad about her orphaned niece, Pollyanna Whittier, coming to live with her. Although she feels a duty to care for her late sister’s daughter, she does not plan on making any fuss over Pollyanna’s arrival. It soon becomes apparent to Miss Harrington and everyone Pollyanna meets that this remarkable little girl is always glad—even about things that seem impossibly dismal. As Pollyanna teaches others how to find something good in every situation, she hopes with all her might that somehow Aunt Polly can learn to live with more joy too.

Level 8

When a simple farm boy befriends a strange and beautiful horse that has wandered onto the lands of Abbey St. Simon, the boy cannot begin to imagine the adventures he will have upon its back. As all of Christendom hangs in the balance, young Hugh embarks on a mission with unfaltering bravery and a sense of duty that will leave even the most powerful leaders and hardened warriors awestruck. Against all odds, Hugh is determined to save his people from the Saracens, with help from one of their very own majestic steeds.

“Set in the tumultuous times of the Crusades, this beautifully written story is an example of how a book can portray a violent time period without graphic details and can powerfully contrast right and wrong while remaining completely uplifting and appropriate. This adventurous tale has everything that makes a book good and beautiful: high moral and educational value, exemplary writing, and an intriguing plot.” —Jenny Phillips
