Overview

From the first sighting of the tramp on his bicycle to the discovery of the German spy's hideout, this story takes you through the really scary times of World War II as seen through the eyes of a seven year old boy.

This tale of a small country boy winds through the one room school, down by the cotton patch, along side the road house and finally to the huge Oxford Elementary School in town.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This attractive and simple nonfiction text is designed to help young readers reflect on their personal experience and build new understandings about family relationships. The colorful, appealing, and diverse photographs of brothers shown in a variety of roles will interest young readers and aid in their comprehension. The large plain font supports simple sentences, familiar vocabulary, and many words with predictable letter-sound relationships for easy decoding. There are only two to three lines of print per page, and the highly supportive illustrations match the message on each page. With adult assistance, early readers will enjoy using the table of contents, glossary, suggested Internet sites, and the index. This book about brothers is one in a series of ten books about families. The entire "Families" series can be read and enjoyed by children in a kindergarten or first grade classroom in support of the national social studies curriculum standards for elementary students.
