Laddie; a true blue story
Loosely based on Stratton-Porter's own childhood, Laddie is a double tale -- the classic poor-boy/rich-girl romance and the story of a child of nature and her idyllic childhood.
One of the best books, ever. I read this aloud to my kids and they loved it. There are plenty of discussion points you can use and it helps instill high values in them.
Wonderful story. Wish we could o back to those days.
