Great book about how Besty Dowdy saved the day during the American Revolution.
What a touching story this is. The plot line is intriguing and students can learn a bit about Hanukkah, too. A boy is going to America and after a crash, finds himself alone on an iceberg. A bear comes and their relationship develops. This book talks about miracles and has a great surprise ending.
Themes: sacrifice, positivity, friendship, and courage

I love books so much! My particular loves are children's books and professional books that catch my fancy. One thing that keeps me happy and sane as a teacher is being able to get tons of books from the library and share them with my students. I have tried different ways to keep track of my books, but here's another attempt. We'll se if I can make this one fly!
