I used this book as a read-aloud for my 5 and 6 year old, and while it was above their reading and comprehension level, we all loved it! We will definitely return to this one.
Brad and his father paddle up the river to the land they have just purchased in the wilds of Maine. After building a simple cabin and starting a garden, Brad’s father leaves to get the rest of his family. Brad is brave and industrious while his father is gone, but the young teenager starts to worry when he sees signs of Indians passing through the area. Things, however, go terribly wrong for Brad, and it appears his father may never return. Will he need the help of the Indians to survive?
Based loosely on a true experience, this exciting book shows how two very different teenage boys, both who think they are superior to the other, learn important life lessons about respect, tolerance, humility, brotherhood, hard work, and appreciation.
This book is a suggested read-aloud for the History Year 3 course.
