An Absolute Treasure Aug 8, 2006
This book is an absolute treasure and is a joy to read. It is at a 7-9 year old reading level, but I, the Mommy, loved it as well. It is the story of a lost little girl and the miracle that lead to her being found. It is set in New Hampshire long ago in our country's early days. I could barely finish reading through my tears. As the book tells us, "Trust in the Lord."
A link with the past Jan 26, 2000
Thanks so much for publishing this book. I am a decendent of Chase Whitcher and had heard stories about Cousin Sarah. What a joy to pass this on to my children. This book is well written and helps children learn how wild animals can be a friend in time of need. This gutsy little girls meets a bear in the woods. She is lost cold and knows that she needs shelter. The "big dog" comes to her rescue. Great reading for a group of children. Goes well with another book about Sarah Whitcher, "The Bear That Heard Crying" by Natalie Kinsey Warmock and Helen Kinsey.
Proof that our Father cares for each of us is in this story. Jul 15, 1999
Sarah's story was the tool we used to show our family how God is real and cares for each of us. Although the recommmended age is 7-9 we read a chapter to the whole family for part of our Bible story. Even my husband was captivated. We had a hard time closing the book after each chapter. Young readers can read with confidence, and little listeners are pulled into the wonderful dialogue and see the care the family characters have for each other. Our family loved this story. We do have a loving Father who cares for us and shows us time and again through many different lives just how much.
