I was extremely moved by the compassion this boy had and how Ms. Fox was able to express this in her writing. Although I have seen many documentaries regarding this era, I believe this book really emotes the true nature of what those people went through coming here to their new land. I strongly encourage any educators to encourage their students to read this book when studying pre-Civil War era history. It is completely appropriate for middle school or high school students.
This book has inspired me to now read another classic book, Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin." However, I will remain committed to completing my Newberry Challenge.
