Courage of Sarah Noble by Alice Dalgliesh, Leonard Weisgard

In 1707, young Sarah Noble and her father traveled through the wilderness to build a new home for their family. "Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble," her mother had said, but Sarah found that it was not always easy to feel brave inside. The dark woods were full of animals and Indians, too, and Sarah was only eight!
The true story of Sarah's journey is inspiring. And as she cares for her father and befriends her Indian neighbors, she learns that to be afraid and to be brave is the greatest courage of all.

The Courage Of Sarah Noble is a true account of a little girl who actually lived in the early 1700's. Eight year old Sarah goes on a journey with her father from Massachusetts to the then wilderness country of Connecticut. Her father is going to build the family a new home there. Sarah is going along to cook for her father. Sarah encounters many new and sometimes frightening situations. During this time she always remembered her mothers advice to ¿Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble.' Sarah and her father live in a cave while he builds the family a new house. She stays in the cave alone in his absence. Sarah makes friends with the Indian children. When the house is completed Sarah¿s father must go and get the rest of the family.

Alice Dalgliesh lived from 1893 to 1979. Born in Trinidad, West Indies, she came to the United States where she was an editor and an author of more than forty books for and about children. Several years ago, my wife checked out her Bears on Hemlock Mountain from the library and I read it aloud to our older son Mark. I really enjoyed it and wanted to read The Courage of Sarah Noble too, but it took a few years. While looking in a bookstore at children's books for our younger son Jeremy's birthday some years later, I came across copies of both books and bought them for him. The Courage of Sarah Noble, which was a Newbery Honor Book, is based on a true story that occurred in 1707, although the author says, "I have had to imagine many of the details." In it, an eight year old girl named Sarah Noble finds courage to go alone with her father from their old home in Massachusetts to help build a new home in the Connecticut wilderness and then to stay with the Indians when her father goes back to bring the rest of the family. Alice Dalgliesh was a wonderful story teller, and this is a really great book. It depicts not only courage, but also love of family and respect for those who are different.

Book Review: The Courae of Sarah Noble tells the true story of a little girl who lived in the early 1700¿s. This little girl goes on a trip from Massachusetts to Connecticut with her father. When they got to Connecticut, Sarah and her father stayed in a cave while Sarah¿s father built a house. Sarah encountered several new experiences that were sometimes very frightening. However, she always heard her mother¿s advice. ¿Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble.¿ Sarah made friends with the Indians. When their house was finished, she stayed with the Indians while her father went to get the rest of the family. Although she was afraid to stay behind, everything worked out fine. This would not only be a wonderful book for children to read, be it would be great book for a teacher to use in character education to teach the meaning of courage.

This was a gift for my special little friend who is finally realizing her reading potential after finally having a teacher who understands her form of dyslexia and was able to "break through to her" thought and visual process and help her to make sense of the words and their order. Kudos to special teachers who take the time to really understand their students!!
