The Sign of the Beaver  by Elizabeth George Speare

The Sign of the Beaver is the fascinating story of a young boy who is left behind to care for the homestead while his father returns to “civilization” to get the rest of the family. When the family never shows up, he is left to fend for himself in the Maine wilderness. A wonderful story of the Northeastern woodland Indians, this Newbery Award winning classic by Elizabeth George Speare encourages perseverance and loyalty. Another Kemmerer family favorite.

I am eleven years old and I am writing this review. I like this book because it teaches us that we can be responsible, patient, and that we don't need electronics to survive or as entertainment. The author writes the book so well that when I read it I feel like I'm actually part of the story. I'm there in the action when Matt (the main character) is meeting Indians, getting stung by bees, or when he rescues his Indian friends' pet dog. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves reading as much as I do.
