A young farm boy and his sheep grow up together. Touching, beautifully crafted, thought-provoking.
This more mature book deals with several life issues: birth, death, real life farm activities, working hard and living off the land. The family never protects their young son from the realities of life but instead allows his experiences to mold him into a caring, competent and mature man. Take time to share these insights with your children as you read together in your 2nd Grade or History / Bible / Literature B package.
