Rocket Readers 4-6 Group
Yes, we are calling are selves the Rocket Readers. After a wonderful discussion on Johney Tremain, we are now looking forward to the next pick. So here it is.
The Sign of the Beaver:
The year is 1768, and the story takes place in what will eventually become the state of Maine. It tells the story of a twelve-year-old boy who is left alone in the wilderness while his father leaves to bring back the rest of his family. He must use skills he learns from the Indians who live nearby in order to survive. When he meets a young Indian boy about his own age, they grow together into manhood.
It is a exciting and wonderful coming of age story, the took place in New Hampshire back yard. Can't wait to see what happens.
