Carry On, Mr. Bowditch 1956 Medal Winner ****

Carry On, Mr. Bowditch is a biography about Nathaniel Bowditch who saved hundreds if not thousands of lives by changing the way ships navigate on the seas. He overcame many trials and heartache to succeed in his life and benefit others for years to come.

I loved this book. I found it so fascinating. After reading it, I needed to know if it was a true story, and unbelievably it is! What a wonderful example for children to follow. I especially loved how he learned foreign languages: the New Testament, Dictionary and Grammar book was all he needed in the language he was learning.
