The Courage of Sarah Noble
Discussion guide hard copy
Eight-year-old Sarah travels with her father from their home in Massachusetts to the frontier of Connecticut in 1707. She is to accompany her father and cook for him while he builds the family a new home. They befriend the local Indians and get their help to build the house. When the house is built, Sarah is left behind with an Indian family as her father returns to bring the rest of the family to the new home. Sarah is quite fearful about this, but she soon adapts to the life of the Indians and they love her as their own. When her father returns she is reunited with her mother and family. Based on a true story, this book provides for a good discussion of courage and an interesting look at the time period. The 10-page guide provides mapping, discussion questions, before and after reading activities, and writing prompts.
This book is used in Mother of Divine Grace (MODG) in 3rd grade.
