9780613853798: Laddie: A True Blue Story

The charming story of Laddie is told by "Little Sister" a young girl who loves to learn, but has no patience with schools. Her ideal classroom is nature itself. Join her as she learns about the world and her place in it. An all-time childhood favorite of many, Laddie is the kind of story that inspires great character and kindly behavior....something that is sadly lacking in most modern literature for the young. Well worth reading, alone or aloud.

From the Back Cover:

The narrative mode of 'Laddie' may prevent an easy suspension of disbelief to some readers. It is told in the first person by the eight- or ten-year-old Little Sister but from the later position of adulthood.
