For Brock’s first book report of 4th grade, he reviewed the book Song of the Brook which was written by Matilda Nordtvedt. This book is a sequel to Secret in the Maple Tree. Brock wrote a report about that story last February at this link: http://colbylobrien.wordpress.com/2008/02/02/book-review-secret-in-the-maple-tree/ .
Here is Brock’s report:
Song of the Brook, written by Matilda Nordtvedt, is a Christian fiction book published by A Beka Book in 1990. It has 118 pages.
This book is about a family of five who move to Washington in search of a new life. Hilda, the older sister, is envious of her rich cousin. Instead of getting rich in Washington, they get a tumbledown shack for a house. They discover a brook, shack, and their runaway cousin. Hilda also learns that her cousin is envious of her. By “making lemons turn into lemonade,” Hilda learns to always be thankful.
