the Way Home
What common ground would a girl from Brooklyn and a farm boy from Windy Hill find in the summer of 1941? They both are Dodgers' fans, and they both have problems that will bring them together in search of answers. Will Brick ever get to go home to the family's apple farm? Will Mariel be able to overcome the crippling effects of polio? Will she find her mother? Along with their love of baseball, the courage and determination of Brick and Mariel help them face their problems as they forge a strong friendship that will take them all the way home to find their treasures. All the Way Home provides a thoughtful and inspiring character study for everyone, ages 8+.
A 20-page unit, perfect for lesson planning and handouts for projection on your SmartBoard for All the Way Home is now available!
