The inspiring classic that The New Yorker called "an exciting tale [with] top-notch writing," about one girl facing harsh conditions and huge responsibility as she brings her family to the American colonies. Featuring a heroine with faith, courage, and a great deal of grit, this acclaimed historical fiction novel portrays the realities faced by three children hoping to find a new home in an unknown land. Amanda Freebold doesn't know what to do. Her father left three years ago for the new colony of Jamestown in America, thousands of miles away. But now that her mother has died, Amanda is left to take care of her younger brother and sister all alone back in England. As the new head of the family, Amanda finally decides to take her brother and sister to America to find Father. The ocean crossing is long and hard, and the children don't know whom to trust. But with her father's little brass lion's head to guard them, Amanda knows that somehow everything will work out.

With a slender design and appealing art, Cullinan and Galda present a thought provoking discussion on how children can read to respond, read to learn, and read to enjoy. This text provides evaluation criteria for selecting superior children's books, rather than listing thousands of titles and synopses. Booklists direct readers to quality literature, and extended discussions of selected titles demonstrate the selection criteria. Multicultural literature is discussed throughout the text, with a separate chapter on more specific multicultural issues. Numerous teaching ideas, many of which are contributed by classroom teachers, provide practical applications. This is a book for teachers, stressing the use of good books in a literature based curriculum.

Fredericks presents guidelines for motivating and encouraging responsibility and comprehension in these children. The book contains more than 40 book units on titles selected to motivate the most reluctant reader, such as The Beast in Miss Rooney's Room, The Bathwater Gang, Much Ado about Aldo and Eating Ice Cream with a Werewolf.

Children develop their feelings toward other cultures and individuals largely through the ideas presented to them by parents and teachers. One good way is to show them respectable and accurately portrayed literary characters from many U.S. cultures. Over 200 selections from children's literature, with plot and character synopses, feature Americans who can serve as role models in overcoming cultural stereotypes. Target activities (role playing, writing assignments, etc.) reinforce the multicultural concepts. The selections are divided into five areas: African American, Asian American, European American, Latino American, and Native American.
