A thoroughly exciting and rewarding Newbery Medal winner and ALA Notable Children's Book, Elizabeth George Speare's The Witch of Blackbird Pond brings this frightening period of witch hysteria to life. Readers will wonder at the power of the mob mentality, and the need for communities in desperate times--even current times--to find a scapegoat. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I read this book in high school as required reading.
Reading this book allows you to really feel what it was like for Kit to want to do what was right, even when the people you love are going to be as hurt as you.
That noted, it is a great book for the audience for which it was written, and an entertaining, quick read for many adults as well.
This was an excellent book. Takes you back to early American life. Feels like you are there.
It also arrived very fast.
I enjoyed the vivid images the author skillfully painted with words. I enjoyed the character, Hannah, and her peaceful abode.Published 8 days ago by Mardi
