The Courage of Sarah Noble 1955 Medal Winner ****

The Courage of Sarah Noble is about a young girl who is left behind to live with Indians while her father goes to bring back the rest of her family. She learns to be brave and discovers that the Indians are just as loving and kind as her own family.

This was a very short story that I listened to on tape. The beginning stated that the story was based on some historical facts, that a young girl was indeed left behind to live with a family of Indians in the new America. My girls were with me listening to the story and really enjoyed the tale. I think this would be a good book to read before talking about race relations and how we feel about others from other countries.
